How to tell if someone is jealous of you: 10 secret signs

3. Constantly Remind You Of Your Past Failures

Whenever you have good news and share it with your friend, he/she acts unexcited or instantly tries to minimize it (and you), and emphasizes it with something like “be present”, or “be careful because something bad could happen once again like it did in your past”, chances are they are jealous of you and secretly hope you fail in the presence. A true friend will know when to appropriately celebrate you, not trying to remind your failures in the past.

4. Criticize You

Hypercritical individuals are obviously not happy and satisfied with themselves, so they will spew their hate on other people.
