Parul Sehgal: An ode to envy
Why do we always hate the new girl?
- Is it far fetch to say that if we didn’t have jealousy would we have much of any literature?
- When we’re feeling jealous, we are telling ourselves a story about that other person.
- Jealousy causes a person to become the custodian of someone else’s unconscious.
- Jealousy trains us to look with intensity but not accuracy.
