Crimes of PASSION.. driven by ENVY!

‘Few men have the natural strength to honour a friend’s success without envy.’

Emotionally unstable personality + passion = Envy! Narcissistic personality disorder is fuelled by the drives of the lower/underworld, where emotional control forego, and instead, emotionally sabotaging behaviours fuel the ego, shadow and soul, leading the self and person DOWN a spiralling path to self destruction, self loathing, self inflicted violence and sometimes suicide! Envy thrives on hatred, anger and contempt… directed or rather projected, out at the environment. Envy, when the emotion overtakes the person it has possessed, is so destructive, that it can drive the recipient to murder… because of love!!!

Envy is an emotion which “occurs when a person lacks another’s superior quality, achievement, or possession and either desires it or wishes that the other lacked it”.

Aristotle defined envy as pain at the sight of another’s good fortune, stirred by “those who have what we ought to have.”

Bertrand Russell said that envy was one of the most potent causes of unhappiness.

Envy is among the things that comes from the heart, defiling a person. The whole body is full of darkness when the eye, the lamp of body, is bad.

Not only is the envious person rendered unhappy by his or her envy, Russell explained, but that person may also wish to inflict misfortune on others, in forms of emotional abuse and violent acts of criminality. Although envy is generally seen as something negative, Russell also believed that envy was a driving force behind the movement of economies and must be endured to achieve the “keep up with Jones” system. He believed this is what helps to maintain democracy, a system where no one can achieve more than anyone else.

Individuals with narcissistic personality disorder are often envious of others or believe others are envious of them. A narcissist may secure a sense of superiority in the face of another person’s ability by using contempt to minimise the other person.

Psychologists have recently suggested that there are two types of envy: malicious envy and benign envy—malicious envy being proposed as a sick force that ruins a person and his/her mind and causes the envious person to blindly want the “hero” to suffer; on the other hand, benign envy being proposed as a type of positive motivational force that causes the person to aspire to be as good as the “hero”—but ONLY if benign envy is used in a right way!

Envy begins with the almost frantic sense of emptiness inside oneself, as if the pump of one’s heart were sucking on air. One has to be blind to perceive the emptiness, of course, but that’s what envy is, a selective blindness. Latin for envy, translates as “nonsight,” and Dante had the envious plodding along under cloaks of lead, their eyes sewn shut with leaden wire. What they are blind to is what they have, God-given and humanly nurtured, in themselves”.

Envy may negatively affect the closeness and satisfaction of relationships. Overcoming envy might be similar to dealing with other negative emotions (anger, resentment, etc.)

Individuals experiencing anger often seek professional treatment (anger management) to help understand why they feel the way they do and how to cope. Individuals experiencing envy often have a skewed perception on how to achieve true happiness.

Coping with envy can be similar to coping with anger. The issue must be addressed cognitively in order to work through the emotion. Anger is the poison that ignites envy into destructive action, against the self – into self sabotage.

Envy can be a painful emotion that can result from an unflattering social comparison of someone who is perceived to be a superior person.

It is much easier to teach a child how to control their emotions while they are young rather than allowing them to develop a habit that is hard to break when they are older.

Envy, the destroyer of all that is good, in the self!

It is never wise to seek or wish for another’s misfortune. If malice or envy were tangible and had a shape, it would be the shape of a boomerang.

Envy, if surrounded on all sides by the brightness of another’s prosperity, like the scorpion confined within a circle of fire, will sting itself to death.
Charles Caleb Colton

Envy is the coward side of Hate, And all her ways are bleak and desolate.
Henry Abbey

Envy is a gun with a faulty breech-lock which flares back and burns the gunner.
