Very well said Cat !
And we call it ENVY ! It's natural, and the good thing about identifying it and labeling it properly, is that it helps put it in proper perspective. It's gives us a target to work on. Because at some level at least, there's an element of selfishness in it. And sometimes it also means we are not engaged enough in constructing our own "selves".
