7. They never celebrate with you

So, let’s say that your neighbors envy you and don’t want to see you succeed at anything. Be it a task, a hobby, or a local competition, these folks would be more than happy to see you not make it.

One obvious sign that they are jealous of you is that every time you invite them to a celebratory BBQ or a few drinks, they have something else to do. Maybe they are not home, or they have some very important guests over; it doesn’t matter the reason your neighbors never want to come over and celebrate with you.

The reason your jealous neighbors don’t want to come to your parties is that they are envious, and your achievements make them feel less. They feel extremely uneasy when they need to be around someone who is better than them.

  1. What advice do you have about jealous inlaws? Son’s wife and her mother constantly picking at me I try to be friends but they make it difficult with the constant negativity

  2. I am retired now, but many years ago when I was working in an office I had a hobby making some crafts, which I made a bit of money selling to my fellow employees. Everyone loved my handmade crafts–but strangely, no one in my department ever bought anything, even though I made some refrigerator magnets for only 99 cents! I could sense they were jealous. However, I always got compliments and praises from the “big shots” in my company, because I think they did not feel threatened, as were my peers who gave me the cold shoulder. So I got along much better with the “higher ups.” And when I sewed myself an outfit and wore it at work, the lesser employees were anxious to point out any flaws in my sewing. They seemed to enjoy putting me down–creepy! I was a single girl and could not afford to buy many clothes, so I sewed. When others outside my department gave me a compliment on my sewing, they seemed grieved. It was creepy. Sorry to be rambling on so much, but it really bothered me. Thanks for reading this. I think it is THEIR PROBLEM, not mine, now that I reflect on this. So don’t let these creeps bother you.

  3. I have a very jealous sister in law. When I would try to talk to her she would ignore me. I even asked her to be in my wedding she refused.she even turned her kids against me and one of her good friends. And I don’t even know her friend for her to hate me. And all this because of jealousy.

  4. I don’t have jealous neighbors but I’ve had some ‘friends’ or though I believed were friends do these exact same things to me. It hurt beyond measure, but we all live and learn!

  5. Honestly, I could never do anything right for them. BUT when I had a skylight crash and didn’t have the cash but paid for it with a painting… the only part of this they LOVED is that I didn’t have the money. No credit for how I paid for it. THEN slowly… the wife said that she painted too and we could paint together. NO THANK YOU.

    I learned the hard way and I don’t look back.

  6. Baby, I have been fighting that green-eyed monster for at least 10 years. It has been different groups, even Church members. I think that the Church Members are feeding from others because I am not around them except on Sunday. I have learned to adapt and keep moving forward.
