I think envy is not only a sad thing but it can also become a dangerous thing...IMO ppl are envious of others when they lack self esteem and self love and sometimes that feeling of envy can become SO intense it turns into a feeling of rage and even hatred...

A feeling of discontent and resentment aroused by and in conjunction with desire for the possessions or qualities of another! Envy is a complex and puzzling emotion. It is, notoriously, one of the seven deadly sins.

When you hear this word. it's quite not good. Buf if you sight a situation like for instance. A pretty girl, very rich , intelligent and very down to earth 9very nice) then I would be envy with her.
