What Good Is Envy?

We might envy another person’s life, but we probably only envy parts of it. If we knew everything going on in that person’s life or everything they’ve gone through in the past, we likely wouldn’t envy them anymore.

Often we only see the parts that look good and we are unaware of other parts that are not so good.

And as Charlie Munger has said, “envy is a really stupid sin because it’s the only one you could never possibly have any fun at.”
