Love vs. Envy

“Love looks through a telescope; envy through a microscope.”
(Josh Billings)

 

When I love you, I strive to see the whole of you, so outlier incidents and continuing struggles do not define you.

 

When I envy you, I see only a few of the outside indicators of your success (i.e. those things I believe I lack). I don’t want to know the whole of your life, with all of its complexities and imperfections and insecurities.

 

This is why it’s impossible to “love” celebrities.

 

Peace begins with pause,
