have you ever envy others because they are smarter, wealthier, happier, stronger, more beautiful or other things? I believe everyone would have at least envy on others even though just for a while. =D so, when you envy on him/her, do you ever wish that you want to be like him/her?? have you ever ask yourself: "Why am i different with him?" please share your thoughts.

hey there.. to be honest i have envied someone before.. but you know what?? its not right.. we need to be thankful of what god has given to us and not ask for more.. we are all blessed by god with smarts and talents of our own.. its a matter of showcasing what we have and not wishing to have one's talents and abilities.. and of course with regards to status of life, we shouldn't count the material things that we have, but the many people that we have with us who are always there for us and who loves us for who we are..

envy is within us all at times. i have to try to remain more thankful and happy for what i have. what i dislike is when i say i have something and the other person answers with something better than i have. they try to top me. i have something, but what they have is better.

yup. everybody should have this envy feeling. It's us to decide whether we will follow the feeling or not. There are that kind of person who boast about himself being very great and always above us in everything even though they are not.

i dont envy anybody, i idolize them. for example when i see someone who is good on playing basketball ( i am not good at it ) i idolize him or i became a fan but i dont think that i wish i was as good as him. we all have a certain trait that we are good at. we are all good in something so we dont have to envy on somebody else. we just have to discover what we are good in and make the best from that.

you have a very cute son. in life, i think we can always envy on others but then we realized that everybody is not perfect. The most important thing is not to be perfect but to live life to its fullest.

Hello, yes, you are right, although just for a while, everyone I think ever feel envy to others. I am, too. But, I don't think that I want to be like others. I think I am envy only for one/two things from him/her. For the others, maybe I am better than him/her. And this is life, nothing perfect in this life. We are life with a 'less' and a 'more'. And we should aware this very well, so that we can take many positive thinking rather than a negative mind. Have a nice day. Best wishes,

Well i dont envy anyone.I think there is no point to envy others because i am satisfied what god has gave me,whether its concern about looks,money or any other things.

I try to be happy with what I have in my life. I have got a house to live in and a car to drive. I have three lovely children and two wonderful dogs. I am very keen on traveling and have managed to visit 50 different countries so far in my lifetime. I hope to go to many more different places in the world. I feel envy when I see property programs on television. A couple has £700,000 to spend on a house in the South of France. In life the best things to have are happiness, good heath and good luck. Money doesn't make people happy.
