Envy

I let go of envy.

Envy is widely agreed to be a symptom of the human tendency to evaluate one’s well-being comparatively, by assessing how well one is doing in comparison with others.

Envy is a complex and puzzling emotion. It is commonly charged with being unreasonable, irrational, imprudent, vicious, or wrong to feel.

Could the root of our use of envy be a lack of self-confidence in our own worth combined with a sense of impotence? Time to look at ourselves with gentle eyes and realize we are valuable.
