Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind. Buddha
It’s true. Peace of mind is something too aloof because we keep on hating others for their achievement while we forget or belittle our successes. As it is human nature to compare ourselves with others, this act, however, makes us come up short.
Envy makes many of us wish for something that others else have. And the sad part is, we can’t seem to be truly happy for them. This leads us to hate these people. But what we don’t realize is that this sensation is ruining our life.
I admit there were episodes in my life that I envy others of their achievements. But as there are many ways to get stuck in a cycle of envy, there are also several ways to deal with bitterness and eventually lead us to true happiness.
