In a world where class divisions are clearer than ever, envy is commonplace. You will always find someone who is “better” off than you in some way. The trouble with envy is that it keeps you down. Envy tells you more about yourself than it does about the other person. The heart of envy is a spirit of lack. Envy is as simple as looking at someone else, comparing your life to theirs, and judging your life as lacking in that comparison. In order to do this you have to devalue yourself, see little worth in your life, and dishonour yourself. It feels bad. When you focus on envy, guess what you get more of? That’s right, you get more reasons to be envious. Envy focuses you on what you lack, rather use that energy to appreciate what you have.
