I will agree with you. I'm all for celebrating the success of others, so long as they've earned it. And thank you for pointing out the other side of it. I've never thought about it like that. It must be difficult not being respected.
Well said, Larry Wall!!! I only thought of the first one. Thanks for the second!
Related to the envy is the belief in scarcity, i.e. if he's successful, it means I can't be. Money is the same thing. "They've got all the money, so there's none left for me." I'm working to change that belief into "there's enough for all, even me."
