Follow your envy
Envy is not usually an emotion that people are proud of feeling. It’s one of the seven deadly sins after all! Some may warn against it as it has the potential to lead to destructive behaviours or trap us in unhappiness. All that may be true, but maybe it can be a useful teacher to us too.
It’s not uncommon for people to come to therapy and to talk about not knowing what they want or what direction to take in life. It can be hard to connect with their desires or be clear about what really motivates them. This is where envy can be useful. When envy is stirred in us it tells us about what is important to us and what we want. So, let yourself pay attention to times you feel envy, it will give you information, on a feeling level, about what you want.
So let yourself follow your envy.
