Jealousy is always known to be something when felt, you’ll be tagged as a bad person. To be tagged as a bad person isn’t something we should like. If jealousy leads to being tagged as a bad person, and you don’t like to be tagged as a bad person then I’ll write that you don’t like to be jealous. Jealousy is some scenarios can be tagged as healthy. Example, when your partner is jealous seeing you with other people. It sometimes shows love and it keeps the relationship together. But in most scenarios, Jealousy is a very dangerous personality  because with jealousy, you will not attract respectable personnels, you will be surrounded with bad people and dangerous people in which you can be lead into doing bad and dangerous things which are obviously not good for you and does not have a good presentation. Jealousy is a feeling of bitterness and causes revenge.

Envy is a feeling of showing appreciation, love but sometimes envy is condemned because of lack of knowledge of envy. Envy is also a feeling of knowing you don’t have something you’ll love to have but happy for the person that has it. Envy and jealousy are things that we see in our everyday life and getting use to it. The problem with envy is that you look down on yourself first before appreciating others which is unhealthy for us.

My question is, is it okay to be envious because of the good side?

Why it is okay to be Envious

It is okay to be envious. The good things about envy is that you are  aware that you are looking down on yourself which can be a good thing to know you are aware because you can make corrections, you can compare yourself with others intelligently in a way to improve on yourself and you show love and appreciation to others which is healthy for you and others,
