Envy is defined as resenting an advantage enjoyed by others, craving something that you don’t have but someone else does. It is a kind of admiration, an unspoken compliment.
Envy is often targeted at our peers, people in similar positions having more than we do, or enjoying life better than us. Example: A college classmate having a motorbike that you cannot afford, but would love to have.
Paradoxically, envy can be educational, inspiring or instructive.
Coupled with awareness, envy can make the person observe and reflect on their emotions and understand what core message is being conveyed.
“Of things, some are in our power, and others are not.”
To make envy an inspiring, gratifying and instructive experience, we can document three things on a notepad whenever we feel the emotion: Trigger, Action and Insight.
