Jealousy is an evil

 

Not long ago, I presented a reflection on radio on jealousy. This is what a listener sent to me:

“It was because of jealousy that Cain killed Abel. In Shakespeare’s play ‘Cenderila’ it was because of jealousy that the sisters kept Cenderila in slavery in the kitchen. ¬†They were aware that she was more charming and more beautiful than them, and so were determined not to let others see her.”

He added:

Jealousy is the “excessive ¬†fear of a rival. It is born of envy at the excellence of others. Its causes are pride; the desire to be first all the times; it is idleness; hatred; and the inability to agree with others.”

Jealousy is a destructive emotion. It cause many problems in society. What else can you say about jealousy?
