Fandango’s Provocative Question #103

FPQWelcome once again to Fandango’s Provocative Question. Each week I will pose what I think is a provocative question for your consideration.

By provocative, I don’t mean a question that will cause annoyance or anger. Nor do I mean a question intended to arouse sexual desire or interest.

What I do mean is a question that is likely to get you to think, to be creative, and to provoke a response. Hopefully a positive response.

Today’s provocative question is about jealousy. Jealousy is generally considered to be a negative trait and when it isn’t kept in check, it has ruined many relationships. So today’s question is this:

Is jealousy purely a negative and potentially destructive emotion, or does jealousy have any value as a motivator to drive people to improve themselves?

If you choose to participate, write a post with your response to the question. Once you are done, tag your post with #FPQ and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments. But remember to check to confirm that your pingback or your link shows up in the comments.

    Sibling rivalry is a form of jealousy. It certainly divides families.

    I love this provocative question… this paved way to a post I’ve been meaning to write for the year end but couldn’t find a way to start 🙂
