Why Feel so Envy?

It’s been a long time, I guess. And instead of me should start working, here I am writing this post.

I stumble upon on The Daily Post‘s blog and saw their latest post for daily prompt‘s asking which emotion(s) do you find to be the hardest to contain?.

I saw the word envy and so, for me, it is the hardest emotion to contain more than hatred. Why I say so?  According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, envy means the feeling of wanting to have what someone else has. It’s okay to feel envy but each emotion can have its utmost level and everything that is too much is bad. If you envy someone because her/his personal looks, there’s possibility that you are loving yourself less. Insecurity and hate to yourself why you are like that and this could emerge without you knowing that it is already consuming you.

We should love ourselves before we could love someone else, for acceptance of who we truly are is the way of finding our wandering self.

I don’t need someone to sit across from me in order to enjoy my delicious sandwich. Going out to eat isn’t always about being social; sometimes you just want a solid meal and to just sit there and to have it served to you. Being surrounded by people who are laughing joyously in groups while they eat doesn’t strike much envy into my heart, so don’t feel sorry for me if you see me hunched over baked macaroni n cheese, alone and silent, at the corner table of a busy restaurant. I am content. The same goes for seeing movies alone, although I get the sense that society is generally more comfortable with that one.
