On Envy, Jealousy, and Insecurity

"If malice or envy were tangible and had a shape,
it would be the shape of a BOOMERANG."

- Charley Reese

Envy. Jealousy. Insecurity. Such thing, whatever word you call it, is deadly.  It's not only deadly, it's downright stupid. 

If you wish to find happiness, recognize the good things around you.  Be satisfied with what you are and with what you have. Stop looking around and questioning why others do or have better. God has given each of His children unique gifts, and He has blessed you with your own.  Do not detest others for loving those you hate.  You do not own their hearts and their minds you cannot control.  And why hate in the first place? Hate is too great a burden to bear. As Coretta Scott King would tell you, hate would only injure YOU, the hater, more than it injures ME, the hated.  In fact, I am not injured at all.

Know that you cannot be envious/jealous/insecure and happy at the same time.  That's sad. Throwing that killer boomerang out, you always just end up hurting yourself.  Envy backfires, every single time.  But the good news is, you have the power to set yourself free. And only YOU have such power. So unfasten the shackles of negativity -- from your tongue, your thoughts, your heart.  Believe me, it will be so much lighter. 

You're not stupid, are you?  Well, since envy is the most stupid of vices because there's nothing to be gained from it, get it out of your system.  I wish you well. :)
