Is there a white / good envy?

Do you believe that? People say that envy is always bad, but... What about being envious when you see a person you really like being happy and you just want to have the same kind of happiness - or something similar - for yourself (without thinking of any harm to that person)? Would it still be wrong to be envious?

I think if you don't mean any harm or don't wish bad things for that person it just means that you envy them in a sort of admiring way. I personally don't see it as a wrong thing but I also think it's better for us to be grateful for whatever we have.

As long as you are not harming anybody you can be envious. But I think it is very unusual to do stupid things in envy.

I think it depends upon our intentions.

I think it is okay to feel envious as long as you mean no harm to anyone and put limitations to yourself too. Too much envy is no longer good.
