Jealousy isn’t an emotion we like to discuss much less acknowledge but most of us have experienced it. We’ve been subjected to the jealousy of others and we’ve experienced the painful insecurities that engender it.
I don’t have siblings of my own but I was a little competitive with my closest cousins for some siblings rivalry can take a very dramatic/tragic turn. I had a friend who felt so inferior to her older sister that it destroyed her from the inside.
There is romantic jealousy sometimes based on actual events/behaviors sometimes completely irrational
Friends can experience jealousy and in adolescence competition over sexual and romantic interests is common.
Sometimes people idolize or obsess over a celebrity, authority, or popular person
Pageants and other types of competitions or sports are also something to consider
For this prompt feel free to write a fictional piece that way you can really exaggerate the experience
