Insecurity is the big fuel behind JEALOUSY. Important to get clear on this.
Envy is about desiring something that someone else has. Or you PERCEIVE they have. And you want it. Your fair share. Fuel source.......often greed.
If you can be rational and honest with yourself, envy is relatively easy to deal with in the grand scheme of things.
Insecurities -fear(leading to jealousy) is more work but extremely worthwhile.
Lots of reading on here and other places explaining the differences and why it's critical to have clarity so you can use the proper tools to attack the problem.
