That Powerful Envy

That Powerful Envy

You feel much stronger envy of others with similar characteristics as yours than those with different characteristics. You are more envious of your peers’ new start-up, your sibling’s extravagant purchase, or your colleagues’ promotions, than Taylor Swift’s record-breaking success.

Worst still, envy is often exploited. Everyone is putting up their best life forward, wishing to be the envy of others. The stark contrast is conspicuous that you can’t help but feel resentful.

If you develop high self-worth, jealousy is a waste of time because you know you have your own race to run.
