Envy is ugly. It’s ugly when we do it and it’s not fun to be envied. Envy isn’t just wanting what another person has. It also comes with a bitter resentment for the other person. That resentment causes me to cease giving the benefit of the doubt to those I envy because I am so annoyed at their dumb luck, I can’t imagine rooting for them to “catch a break”. We see this in subtle and not so subtle ways in sports, politics, school drama, and office dynamics.
