  1. There are two ways. (1) The time that is not given to you, you will occupy yourself with something more interesting than thoughts about jealousy. Think about yourself, your life, and your interests. After all, friends may also not be all smooth sailing, even if they tell you in colors how cool it was. It's not yours. This is theirs. And leave them with that. (2) You will talk to your friends and try to come up with a compromise that will smooth out the moment of jealousy. For example, if your friend likes to tell you in front of you what a great time they had with someone else, just ask them not to specify these points. This is unpleasant for anyone. Yes? It's like there's always a fountain and you have a rotten dog with you. But it's not about you. It's about them. Still, if you find it difficult to ignore it, if it seems to you that it lowers your self-esteem, you don't have to listen to it. So say it, find the words: I don't want to, I don't like it.

    Personally, I use both the first and second options to the same extent. Even in the company of complete strangers, when I realize that my friend has a dozen other friends besides me, I manage to find someone who is interesting to exchange a word with. Well, if I want to get through some things in private with my own people, then I can say: listen, there will be a lot of people, let's do it another time. And I know that there will definitely be time for me.
