is there really a differnce betwen jealousy and envy?  Seems to me the former is just more honest...
In my own use of the words, I make a distinction between the two, with jealousy always being sourced out of a sense of insecurity -- there is a sense of "being less than" for not having something or someone, and usually a sense of insidious attack accompanies it from that place of lack ("She's so talented I could just kill her!"). Whereas envy can be just the desiring of what one doesn't have at the moment ("I envy your ability to travel so much. One day I hope to create that ability for myself as well...")

One can be envious without being jealous, but never jealous without being envious. Smiley

This.I can't remember the last time I was jealous of someone.   Envious?  Absolutely. There are things I want that other people have.  So it's time to make a plan to get those things/situations/states of being in my own life.   But I am glad that the people I envy have what they have.  Everyone deserves blessings.  I just have to go get mine.Smiley

never jealous waste of time,, now and then get envious but not often. I do get annoyed more and it comes across as a sore looser so I have to be careful of that.

I don't necessarily like the word envious, myself.  I'm just accepting it the way sami used it -- as meaning aware of wanting something that someone else has for myself.  Not wanting to take their actual thing whatever it is, but wanting to achieve something like it for myself.

Nothing wrong with being aware of what I want to do, be or have.  That's where healthy goal-setting starts, I think.

It's the sitting around, festering over things that over people have, that is a problem.  Just set goals and get it for myself.  There's the ticket. :0

I think she defined the two very well.  I find myself being envious of young people with talent and time - more of the latter; they have the chance to make something of their talent.   At my age you have to work so hard....

is old age wasted on the old too?  I wonder...

I guess someone is thinking that life is wasted on the living ... Wherever they can sit and think that, that is...
