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.
