Beware of Bitter and Envious People

Beware of anyone, whether rich or poor, who feels bitterness towards those who have what they don’t, or contempt towards those who don’t have what they do. The concept of “coveting”–not just wanting stuff, but feeling hatred and disdain for someone else for having what you want–is what drives a lot of state collectivism.

If you can’t be happy about other people’s success and happiness, you need to look inside yourself and sort some shit out. Whining about the “unfairness” of life (even if it IS “unfair”), simply because others are better off than you, is not a road that leads to happiness, peace or harmony. Amen. (Sermon over.)
