There's no simple remedy --- what would work though would be to see a good local shrink for a full assessment ( including the where, how and why of the jealousy ) and then CBT style counselling to unlearn that bad behaviour, and to learn how to appreciate what's good about you, and how to not need to make those ugly comparisons any more

It depends on what u are jealous of, sometimes jealousy is good, provided u keep it under a tight lid. give me examples cause as u know something just cant be fixed.

You know what, other people may have qualities that you don't have, BUT you have qualities that they don't have, everybody is unique in his/her own way!

First you need to accept yourself for who you are and believe that you're just as great as anybody else can be!
