Envy, the Green eyed Monster
Envy is called the green-eyed monster for a reason. Envy is something that can eat away at a relationship or your own peace of mind. It is the feeling of displeasure when we see someone else get an advantage that we don't have or a promotion or some new item. We would be glad if they did not get it. We for some reason think we are more worthy to have it than them. This is not love. Love does not envy. It does not want to hurt someone else or to wish them ill.
Love rejoices when someone else receives recognition. Love is happy when someone else is successful.
