    Nope, if they work very hard to get to where they got to then nope. I'm fine with that.

    I do get mad and angry rather then jealous when seeing people that do not do any work and not putting affect into it and yet they get so much success, they get it from other people and dang dang dang

    That probably is annoying, although not entirely unjustified, although something to note is that sometimes people do a lot more work than what you see on the surface.

    Twitch streamers for an example they stream and they always play any kind of content.. they site all day mostly... and those that are very big get unless donations from the viewers and also support

    I stopped getting jealous when I read a quote saying "Seeing others succeed should be good as life is a journey not a competition"

    That's just like being jealous of other people's achievements as seen on Facebook. So the answer to your question, definitely not. You have your own life to be concerned about.

    I think a quote which I may not get exactly right but close enough comes to mind for this thread.

    'Do not be jealous of my success until you know the sacrifices I took to get it."

    I'm not sure about Twitch in particular, but with YouTube, it can take like five years of constantly pumping out content and next to no views to really get anywhere.
    Plus, the expensive equipment, those microphones? A hundred bucks. That computer? Thousands. They may also have a green screen.

    And in the end, I don't think it really pays that well, at-least not that well compared to a regular day job. Even if one did blow up out of nowhere, it's kinda like criticising footballers for not doing "real work" and getting millions for doing practically nothing but kick a ball around.

    I try to learn from others, getting jealous certainly won't help yourself succeed. It's all about a healthy and positive mindset.

    Jealousy is a wasted emotion. If someone has something you want, just map out your own path to achieve it. Your energy is better spent learning and working than pouting.

    No, not to a large degree. However, if they talk badly about people and be bossy, then I won't like them, but not cause of jealousy.

    Yeah sometimes I do. But I try to take that as motivation to do better. :)

    Jealousy is fine, bitterness is not in my humble opinion

    I don’t get jealous about other people’s success. Generally, I just find myself disappointed in myself and try to find ways I can improve and strive to succeed. Jealousy is pointless and harmful to ones body and mind. There is no point.
