Is it bad to feel envious of my friends? It happened a few times and at the same time I was happy for them?

    Do you really think their lives are so perfect and so much happier than yours is???

    The fact you felt genuine happiness forgives your envy, because it proves you mean no harm.

    We can’t control our feelings- only the way we react to them. You can’t help feeling jealous any more than you can help feeling sad or hungry. As long as you still care for and support your friends, and understand that their successes don’t negate yours, there’s nothing inherently bad about feeling envy sometimes.
