Can be positive or negative
by: Anonymous

It depends on the person on whether it's negative or positive. If the jealous person becomes angry and bitter that someone else has something they want then yes, it's negative. If they get caught up in thinking things like, "It's not fair" and "Why doesn't anything good ever happen to me?" and hating the other person for having something they want then again, very negative.

If they turn it around and see that yes, they would like what the other person has and then starts to think about how they could get something similar for themselves then it's positive because it's making them realize what they want and then working towards actually getting it.
