Jealousy is a feeling that ages with time, intensifies with comparison, disappears with humility.
Jealousy is cruel. It feels like a sharp pain of injustice, seemingly cold actions inflicted by the world, the rage of loss.
Jealousy is the cousin of anger; the child of sadness. It breeds resentment and creates pain. It means lusting for things that are not just necessities but sources of comfort. It is the failure to view reality through a clear lens. It is the rise of wants and reduction of needs. It is lack of understanding of the universal undertow of the world — we do not lose what is meant for us. We do not receive what we cannot learn from.
Jealousy means lack of trust in the forces that drive us.
