a feeling of discontent or covetousness with regard to another's advantages, success, possessions, etc.
Antonym: comfort, confidence, contentedness

I'm a person who likes to avoid drama as much as possible but as with all of us, I have a lot of internal struggles. One that God is currently testing me with is envy. I'm really unsure about how I should act. I know I should be happy for others about their advantages, success and possessions but what am I supposed to do about myself? Is it okay for me to still be aiming for better, even if that means I'm overtaking another? Will that still mean I'm happy for the advantages, success and possessions of others? How am I supposed to achieve the feeling of comfort, confidence and contentedness?

Also, Reality TV stirs up even more envy. I was watching MTV Teen Cribs the other day and I was so jealous of the people's houses. This is not good for my mentality.
