Jealousy vs Envy

Envy (from Latin invidia) is a resentment which "occurs when someone lacks another's quality, achievement or possession and wishes that the other lacked it."

Jealousy is an emotion, and the word typically refers to the negative thoughts and feelings of insecurity, fear, and anxiety over an anticipated loss of something of great personal value, particularly in reference to a human connection. Jealousy often consists of a combination of emotions such as anger, resentment, inadequacy, helplessness and disgust.

One of my bestie mentioned something about another person being envy about her - more specifically of the men in her life. 

Aren't we all destined for whatever it is that we are? Err if that made sense. Why the envy of another person then?

When we are nice, people take advantage. When we are not doing good, people have pity or some are even happy. When we are happy because we choose to be despite whatever is happening, people get envious. Hmmm.. Envio
us of what we have, who we are friends with.. c'mon man, no one has any idea what one's journey has been. Can't we all just be happy for everyone? 

Just sayin...
