3 Kinds of Envy
1. Depressive envy
When someone you know does better than you, it often feels like you are a loser, a failure, or inferior. You think that their success reflects your failure.
2. Hostile envy
Because the other person’s success has resulted in your feeling that you can’t stand it, you may want them to fail.
3. Benign envy
Benign envy leads us to pay attention to what the other person is doing because we often think we can learn something.
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.
