ENVY SHOWS THE LIFE THAT YOU DESERVE

by Mr. Mean-Spirited



Envy reveals everything that should have been yours; jealousy shows what other people are keeping from you. Absolutely everything, the whole lot, every last thing that you might happen to envy should have been yours – all of it, no matter what. Jealousy shows just how much you have been cheated by society. Everything that you desire was supposed to be yours, but then interlopers managed to steal your birthright. Envy shows just what other people have taken away from you.  

Envy is like a search for your own stolen possessions in a seedy establishment; jealousy is that moment of recognition that this piece of property is truly yours. The sense of envy is exactly the same as that feeling when you identify one of your stolen belongings in a pawn shop. The stronger the jealously, the truer the realization that it should be returned to your ownership.

The establishment is certain to indoctrinate you that envy is wrong, but it is always these very same authorities who have already taken most everything that is yours. It is always the tax collector that is the first to tell you jealousy is prohibited. The do-gooder who mostly loudly insists that you should not be covetous always turns out to be the professional thief.

Envy is the most useful emotion. You are never more perceptive than that moment when you are jealous of another person. You are never more observant than when you are feeling envy. The greedier the human, the more acute his senses. The more covetous the man, the more cunning his mind. Love is blind, but loathing is always in perfect focus.

Envy is prudent. You keep begrudging until chance circumstances give you a chance to take things back. Resentment lets you bide your time until the right moment to strike back. Jealousy gives you ample time to premeditate things.

Envy demonstrates what is your true destiny. Jealously displays the hand of providence.

Envy opens you to emotions that society would rather suppress. Hatred is the most potent sensation that can be experienced by the human soul; resentment is the gateway to that honest rancor in the back of your mind. Jealousy frees you up to primordial passions like pure hate. Greed liberates the soul.

Envy is what makes you human. If you do not feel jealousy when you are deprived of what should have been yours, then you are not fully human. If you are not jealous of someone else’s better fortune, then you are not honest about your real feelings.

Envy shows everything that you were denied. All this was supposed to be yours. If you don’t feel jealousy, then you haven’t truly felt anything in life.

  1. Envy shows only that one has not lived. Or rather, maybe, that a person hasn't understood what has been lived. To want the dust of another is only to change one set of smelly rags for another set of rags that smell.

    In the end each one of us is homeless, dragging around trash in a grocery store cart.

  2. The establishment also wants you to envy, that you may toil under oppressin for all your days, striving for what is out of reach, jealously guarded by those who have and want to keep.

    The only thing I envy is oblivion, and I'll get it someday. Oh, how I'll get it lol!

  3. Envy is the most worthless of emotions and this is why: because the downside (and there is always one) to someone's good fortune, however it might have been obtained, tends to be invisible. The material advantages that such a person might enjoy, fine houses and cars and lovely ladies or pretty boys, as the case may be, are quite obvious, while the downsides tend to be little tortures preserved for the the private moments, the quiet moments, when the envied person is left alone to confront the emptiness of their existence.

    1. Reminds me of own of my favorite songs by The The; "This Is The Day". It sounds upbeat, but is more an existential song about a guy hoping to find meaning in his life, accompanied with accordion, which all makes me think of French existentialism and Camus. Wonder if it was intentional lol

  5. These thoughts are good, but when the person you preach this too envys you and thinks he deserves your things then what? Fight to the death? You will spend your life fighting every day until you have everything and no one left to envy you. Conversely, if you want nothing you will have everything you want, if you learn to be content you will never be in want.. you only think of one side of the equation, therefore you will always be at war with others, the positive people will always be at war with you, the only answer is to be content not happy or sad about what you already have. Everything else will be a bonus. If a hungry person keeps catching fish and letting them go because he knows there's bigger fish, he will likely starve before ever getting the biggest catch in the pond..
