Today's Daily Dharma: The Upside of Envy

The Upside of Envy

Avoidance of envy, if it was ever feasible, is a dinosaur gone extinct. The trick is to steer ourselves toward the emotion’s beneficial side. . . .  envy can bring us closer to what we dearly want to attain, and help us course-correct, if necessary, to get ourselves back on track.
- Louisa Kamps, "In Defense of Envy"
