Jealousy, although an unpleasant emotion, rears its ugly head now and then. It stirs up feelings of insecurity, inadequacy and discontent. It’s normal because we’re human, but letting the green-eyed monster consume you will lead to a life of misery and unhappiness.
Russian artist Igor Kalashnikov clearly sees the pointlessness of wasting away energy envying what others have and what you don’t. He whipped up a comic strip to help readers keep jealousy away for good.
Remember, you’re not in a competition with anyone but yourself. As former president Theodore Roosevelt once said: “Comparison is the thief of joy.”

Support our Journalism with a Contribution
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community. Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone's support. We love you all and can't appreciate you guys enough.
