About This Quiz

People who say they've never been jealous are most likely lying. There's always going to be someone who has more than you, seems to be more successful or looks better. But you have no idea what's going on in that person's life that they don't show on the outside, so you have to be careful what you envy about others. In the age of social media, people show others what they want them to see and not always what reality is. It's a slippery slope and can make people actually feel really bad about themselves. At that point, it's just time for some perspective.

Consider the perspective that someone is probably jealous of you in some way, too. You might not think you have it all together or have achieved half the things you set out to do, but to someone else it could seem the complete opposite. But what is it exactly that others envy about you? It'll change depending on the person and how they feel about their own life, but there's certainly something. It could be as small as the shoes you are wearing to as big as the career you've worked hard for. What do you think people envy about you? Take this quiz and we'll tell you!
