As you may know, we have a weekly feature, Team Oracle, whereby each Friday we open questions of a personal nature to all of you to answer too. Then, the following Friday, I post a selection of the best answers, alongside my own reply.

ANYONE can join in so, if you'd like to, please email your response to the following question, in no more than 250 words, to theoracle@coldplay.com before midnight Thursday 24th October.

I have been in a whirlpool of thoughts for quite sometime now due to jealousy. This feeling has developed since the time my best friend, who is a poet, has started writing for a band. I am a writing enthusiast too and this sick feeling that I can write better than him is creeping up and making it all very negative. Of course I don't have the courage to share it with him and at the same time I am all frustrated inside. All the time, I feel like proving him that I am better. It's blocking my thought processes and I am doomed. How do I get rid of this feeling. Am I really worth nothing or is this just jealousy making me feel like that? Mia, India.

Look forward to seeing your replies.

The Oracle.
