“I have a particular problem I'm quite ashamed of where I struggle being happy for others in their success. It makes me feel upset with myself and quite narcissistic. For instance if my boyfriend gets a good grade, I'll feel threatened and annoyed by it, when really I want to be honestly congratulating him and able to experience it with him. I find it difficult to work through it and don't know how to really overcome the intense emotion that I feel”
