The Second Face of Envy

There are two faces of envy. The first one is who envies others who are successful. Because of that, it will drive the person to work harder, so success will also be achieved.

The second one is who envies others but will do anything to put them down, either by gossiping, backbiting, or other forms of malicious actions. They do that because success can’t be achieved, so they drag others. They probably have been experiencing failure and misery all their lives which could be the result of their own doing. They can’t take it anymore. To lessen their pain, they taint others. In that way, they feel that failure isn’t bad at all since others have also become a failure. These are the kind of people who never succeed in their lives. They got stuck. They can’t move on.

Don’t be the second face of envy.
