LOVE Insecure and agree 100% with your assessment of Molly. Sadly, she doesn’t really want Issa to be successful at anything, because it would change the dynamic of their friendship. Hence her trying to ruin Issa’s partnership with Condola. Yet, she doesn’t see it this way.

And like you said, we’ve all been there… Feeling threatened by the success of others—wanting them to do well but not better than us! It takes a lot of self-work and growth to get to a place where we truly believe we’re only competing with ourselves and someone else’s light doesn’t diminish ours. We have to separate our identity from external circumstances.

It also takes courage and growth to acknowledge parts of ourselves of which we aren’t proud. Much respect to you for doing that!
