Envy

Envy is an emotion you feel when you want something someone else has, or when something good happens to someone you know, like your best friend, sister or brother. You wish that the good had happened to you. Instead of feeling happy for that person, you may be angry or upset with her or him.



It can be hard to be genuinely happy for someone else's good fortunewhen you want it too, but you can learn how to deal with feelings of jealousy and turn them around. You can start by focussing on good things that happened to you; that way you can spend less time feeling angry and upset, and more time feeling happy.

There are different kinds of envy; you may be jealous of a friend's good fortune; you might feel envious someone else is getting attention you want from a particular person; you may be jealous of something your friend or classmate can do better than you, or you might be envious of your sister or brother. Children in a family often want something at the same time; it could be the last slice of pie, or a chance to watch a favorite TV show. The winner is envied by the rest of the children.
