Have you ever envied somebody?! Have you ever met people who envy you till they lose their minds, not even having the clue what are you passing through?! Envy! Every person has experienced this feeling! If not in mature life, then certainly in childhood. But it happened or still happens! And it sucks! It’s haunting your mind and throwing you into a miserable life.

Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others.
He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.
̶  Buddha

Envy (also called invidiousness) is best defined as an emotion that "occurs when a person lacks another's (perceived) superior quality, achievement, or possession and either desires it or wishes that the other lacked it." It’s not jealousy! Jealousy is the fear of losing something that one possesses to another person, while envy is the pain or frustration caused by another person having something that one does not have oneself. ||

Leaving the scientific approach, envy kills you! It kills the real you and converts the real you into a pathetic human being who seem not to have anything better than ruining somebody’s life. If not stopped from the start, it can become a sort of a mental disease. Those who envy all the time and don’t have anything better to do should let themselves have that tiny drop of courage and start doing what they have always dreamt to and where stopped because of fear. An interesting part will be treating those who will start envying the way they wanted to be treated before.

It’s not about how fast you start,
it’s about how strong you finish.
Great people are willing to take risks,
small people are not willing to
because they are afraid to fail.
  ̶  Jaeson Ma
Don’t envy! Live your life.
If you achieved success and happiness 
and some envy you,
still go on with working on 
your success and happiness.
