I’ve always wondered. Why is there envy between people? Can someone answer me?
Envy has existed and will exist as long as there are people on earth. It began with Cain’s envy on his brother Abel. Envy is a negative, strong emotion, a mixture of sadness, anger and helplessness. Envy means recognizing that the envied person has the advantage, he is perhaps smarter, he has more friends, he has a successful professional life, and so on. Envious people can’t accept being overtaken by others, because no one deserves more than them! It is interesting that the envious envy those around them the most, because only with them they are in a permanent competition, only they cause them inner suffering, feelings of frustration, sometimes intense hatred, resentment and thoughts of revenge.
Just my thought today….
Have you ever been envious?
