Envy is not something I should have

Sometimes when I think about how I envy people for stuff they have or the places they gone too, I feel guilty for thinking that way.

It makes me feel like I'm not thankful enough for all the things I have in life.

I'm living a better life than others where in some places they don't have an education, don't have a home, don't have food and water and don't have a family. I have all that.

Instead of being grateful for the things I have, I'm always thinking of how nice it will be if I'm rich or if I own this and that. I committed more than one of the seven deadly sins; envy and greed.

Being materialistic is really bad because all I ever think of now is earning more money. But in the world now, you can't help but figure out that even though money is not everything, it's not nothing either.

ming...it's totally normal dont feel guilty bout it..it's one of the deadly seven sins. yeah it's true we should be grateful to have what we have but it's human nature to want more.

but again, wanting something and not getting it sucks big time. :(

It is dangerous when the devil is in us. In my opinion, to be better, we should learn how to bless others! Have a nice day, girl!
