Why do you think we become jealous of others ?
Like I’ve never been jealous of a doctor or an engineer or a lawyer because I’ve never tried to become a doctor or engineer or lawyer and therefore I never felt I had to compare myself to any one of them
But I’ve been jealous of authors and musicians because I wanted to become an author and a musician
I find people have been jealous of my vocabulary at poetry clubs
And my intelligence in university lectures
And my work ethic at jobs
And my happiness and high self confidence in social support groups

Usually because they have something that we want. Be it looks, charisma, or power, they have it and the jealous want it.

It is actually the nature of mankind to become jealous , then GOD allow us to be jealous of others in three occasions , One, Jealous that you would be able to become knowledgeable person as him/her ,Two , Jealous that you have the same talent of certain thing as him/her, Three,to be of good manners as his/her posses. This means , when you become jealous of these three things, then you would start your endeavor in exerting your efforts to obtain all these.That is why.

since you like poetry and music, your talent may lie in becoming a lyricist.
