From Envy to Happiness (2)

Comparing oneself to others is very normal but it can also cause a lot of problems. Envy is a feeling of discontent triggered by drawing comparisons to someone else who has an attribute or possession one deems valuable. Envy is interesting for the series of steps it requires and the destructiveness that is associated with it, both for the envious person and the target. Understanding envy and better uses of communication can help individuals better deal with this destructive emotion and  help prevent it in the wider society.
