Someone asked me about envy. I’m grappling with how to handle the question. In the meantime, here’s an earlier post.
People do all kinds of mean and crazy things, driven by jealousy. I seem them build a case against a person or persons, totally unaware of what’s driving them.
Maybe they feel the person who has what they want, does not deserves what they have. But I don’t know how they’d know that.
I have never been a particularly jealous person. I don’t know why this is. I grew up waiting on people. I was just always glad they had some money to tip me with!
Talent is another thing people are jealous of. This is a little easier for me to understand for some reason.
Are you able to overcome your jealous feelings or do you just live with them?
Have you ever acted out against someone you were jealous of? If so, did it make you feel worse…or better?
