Podcast Episode 186: Own Your Envy

    Jan 1, 2024

    Envy brings out the ugly in us…and it can start when we’re very young.

    Did you envy anyone when you were a child? I envied other little girls who were dainty, and didn’t take up the whole frame of the school photo with a big head and shoulders. In my yearbook, there’s a ridiculous photo of me with my Brownie troop, and I’m squishing my arms together in front of me so I’d look a tad tinier than I was.

    Did you have envy in high school? When I was in high school, I envied cheerleaders and girls with boyfriends. Or even dates.

    And even after you grew into a mature, responsible adult—have you ever envied anyone? How about now?

    For sure, all of us know what it’s like to want something we don’t have.  So how do we deal with the Green -Eyed Monster comes to steal our joy?

    Find out in this week’s episode!
