When I was five I was envious of my friends toys. I had these tame wooden toys, given to me by my well-meaning hippy parents. My two best friends had Big Pink Plastic Barbie doll houses. With soft teeny tiny pink blankets. I had such stings of envy towards them that I plotted to steal something from their doll houses, if only one of those teeny tiny pink blankets – just to give my wooden blocks a fancy cover. 

Apart from a love for pink (as you MIGHT be able to tell from my Youtube thumbnails), things have changed quite a bit for me. First of all: i’m no longer considering stealing Barbie accessories. Secondly, the envy itself. Now it’s not that Im never ever feeling envious. I believe it’s part of being human. But with Nonviolent Communication and a few other tools I’m able to move through it super fast. One thing that I learned to keep in mind, is that the envy is never directly about the Barbie doll house that the other has. Or the real life mansion. Or the looks they have. Or the kick-ass business they built.

I’m sharing with you what it IS really about, and 3 ways to move through envy and jealousy super easily, in my Ultimate Guide to dealing with Jealousy. I call it ‘jealousy’ in this title because that is what most of you search for, but there is a difference between jealousy and envy and a different solution – I will share this in the video as well.

‘How we resolved the conflict about our carpet’
You might say: ‘but Marianne, I like all that mindful conflict resolution and stuff, but what if it’s just about something silly like what carpet are we going to put in the living room? Can’t I just push a bit for what I want and it will be just fine?’
And I would say: ‘NO YOU CANT!’ Kidding. Of course you can. But. There is an after effect. When you push for what you want, you start with the assumption that it’s needed for you to push for what you want, that it is not EASY for you to receive what you want in life. That others don’t want that for you, or maybe you yourself don’t think you are deserving. It is a deeeeep thing. And so resolving a disagreement properly is about assuming that life will give you what you need, that YOU can bring yourself what you need. It’s about loving yourself. Yes, even talking about the decision for a carpet is about loving yourself. Now in order to make this a bit more practical, me and my boyfriend are going to demonstrate a self-loving, friction free conflict resolution about a disagreement we had. Bonus: you will find out what carpet goes in our living room!
