Ryan North's Severed Head, Kept In An Attic Box
ATTENTION ARTISTS: sometimes your friends will have successes, and you'll be jealous, even if you don't want to be.

Don't make posts tearing them down! And don't passive-aggressively say "Oh wow! Good for you! I had a great pitch for that!"

(That just makes the person feel bad, and implies THEIR success is YOUR failure: it's never zero-sum like that)

Instead, just be happy for them. They're your friend and they're doing great, and that's AWESOME and you're so happy!

And if you can't be happy for them, if despite your efforts you're still jealous, if you can't rise above your demons...

...then TRICK 'EM. Put it in selfish terms. On a purely selfish level, wouldn't you WANT your friends to be successful?

Because then you're in a room full of powerful, successful people WHO LIKE YOU. Jealous peeps just need to be more Machiavellian!

Have had friends who found success by stealing my ideas thanks to me thinking I could trust them and ask their opinion on ideas.

Can imagine I was pissed off big times. And she had even just traced different scenes from her fav manga to fit with the story.

Oof well at least that's objective proof that they're plagiarizing

I ate a whole entire little caesars pizza and I can see why many of my peers would be bothered by that big success at a small price
