(and how to overcome it)

Envy and Jealousy are feelings we experience when we want something we don’t have. They can be destructive and can prevent us from achieving happiness.

Understanding what they are, how they differ, and how we can use them to our advantage is an essential step to a journey of contentedness and satisfaction.

A feeling of discontent or covetousness concerning another’s advantages, success, possessions, etc.


Resentment against a rival, a person enjoying success or advantage, etc., or against another’s success or advantage itself.


Both of these feelings are not only about tangible objects- you can feel them in regards to intangible things as well: success, power, health, and love.
