Envy Can inspire us to positively change habits and priorities.It points you in the direction that you deep down want to explore.I envy great artists ,scientists,doctors Musicians,etc .Envy makes us strive to emulate people we look up to.

No. I don't like being me all that much at times and yet people look at the surface of my life and claim to envy me. So I don't make the same mistake with others. It's better to focus on what you have than on what you don't.

1

No. I'm happy being me.

2

Nah, it is pointless to do so. We have no clue what is happening in anybody els life, we only see the surface.

I envy individuals who can play a musical instrument with great skill.Why? Because I can see the joy and satisfaction that they get in doing so

i don't envy any particular individual. i do rather envy people who are healthier than i am.

Nope.

Instead I feel grateful for what I have.

Jealousy and envy make you unhappy.

I do.....I envy the young.....not that I would want someone else's youth...but I would dearly love to be young and productive again.

My sister in law Coleen. She is 3 years younger and looks 15 years younger. She has adorable curly hair but more importantly she has grace. Natural grace, and compassion. I'm not awful, but I would love to be more like her.

You probably are and don't see it yourself.

Nope. Never saw the poiint of envy.

I envy those who have more than enough money to live life effortlessly. Notice that I do not give you a name here for anyone that I envy in this way. To do that would then make it personal and I would have to start feeling all kinds of thoughts that are not desirable to have. I would become a bad person by having such personal envy. I do not want to take anyone's wealth away from them. I'm even happy for lottery winners but the thought does occur that it would be wonderful if it could be me. If that was ever to happen I would still want to remain unknown to the public.

I envy no one. They may have what I might never posess, but the same goes for me.

I don't envy people because for me it's about the whole picture. I am honestly blessed with all a man could need and I try wherever possible to use that to help others.

Whenever I see a political bashing post I wonder what it must be like to be blissfully ignorant.

Any time you drink trumps kool aid you can let us know.

It's better to focus on being a good person rather than comparing yourself to others. It's rare you will find anyone who doesn't have some thing you will admire more than yourself, and that can drive you crazy, and it's a waste of time.

I try very much not to be envious of people. It causes a feedback loop where it makes me feel bad about my own life which in turn makes me more envious of people, rinse, repeat, etc... I'd rather figure out my own than focus so detrimentally on another (wo)man's.

Nope. Envy is a waste of my time.
