Jealousy is an ugly emotion and I doubt it can possibly function in a positive way. An emotion that mean is never going to produce positive results. When you see someone who is “doing better” than you, you can feel admiration or envy. Admiration may help you decide to do something to become like the people you admire. You are impressed and admire someone. You want to be like them. But when you are jealous, deep in the thrall of envy, you hate them. You want what they have and will bring them down — at any cost. Anything based on hate will never yield a positive result.
Jealousy is nasty and ugly. There’s nothing good about it, nothing positive.
Right now, I’m actually watching Trump’s attempt at a coup in the capital. Talk about jealousy and malignant narcissism at work. Is there anything positive about this? Is there a single good thing anyone could draw from this nightmare?
Of all of the nightmares I imagined, this is by far the ugliest thing I have seen. Will we ever get our country back?
