Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have notAnn Brashares
I’ve noticed myself feeling envious of other people. Particularly I would feel envious of people that know love. That have someone who takes them as they are. This brings in immense sadness and anxiety attacks. When I’m envious of someone it can be frustrating, because I usually just want to be happy for that person’s success. So then, not only do I feel envious, but I feel guilty.
We feel the things we do for a reason, and oftentimes we have to dig deep within to understand the true source of those feelings. Be patient with yourself. The more fulfilled you feel in the various aspects of your life—romantic, social, professional, and hobbies—the less envy you will feel towards anyone.
Nevertheless by being envious of someone, you’re putting down your own positive spirits.
