The Danger of Envy

Recommended Posts

There is nothing that can kill a flower faster than being choked out by a weed. Harboring envy in your life is like that, it will choke the life out of you and everyone around you.

I feel emotions like envy can ruin a person's delicate soul. It is right up there with gossip and hatred in my books. Why waste your time worrying what others are doing, and thinking the grass is greener on the other side of the fence. All people, and I mean ALL people have problems and issues we do not even know about. Someone's life that you think you want may not be so great after all.

Envy is a dangerous emotion. I think it's something that everyone struggles with, but some just internalize it as one of their weaknesses. 

 I once had a woman envious of my job. She actually attempted to get me fired and broken up with my then fiance!

Instead of getting angry and jealous with someone's success, we should take inspiration from them and work on improving ourselves. Controlling emotions and using them positively will lead us to success.

Envy and jealousy usually occur at the same time. They can put stumbling block in people's life. However, one should know how to be humble and repent from it.
