Your Envious Mind

Your Envious Mind

You find yourself thinking:

  • They don’t deserve this.
  • They think they are superior to me.
  • They are superior to me.
  • I can’t stand being around them.
  • I hope they fail.

And then-

  • This reflects how inferior I am.
  • I keep falling behind.
  • People will look at me like I am a loser.
  • I could have done that.

A medical student!🩺 I’d like to live as simply as possible. I love reading- regardless of what type of book it is. People are wonderful, especially those closest to me. I’m determined to do some good for others in whatever I end up doing in the future.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton
