Love is This, Not That- Envy

Love is This, Not That- Envy

Envy is a lack of contentment that is based on comparison. When we use comparison to measure ourselves, we fall into ungratefulness which can destroy a relationship.
Envy can sneak its way into
  • life roles
  • work/life balance
  • relationships
  • etc
Research in a psychiatry investigation by Yanhui Xiang,1,2,* Xia Dong,1,2,* and Jiaxu Zhao1,2. suggests that envy directly increases the likelihood of getting depression and as well as the possibility of depression becoming long term as it erodes social support.
Dive into this episode to learn more about how to find a healthy balance with jealousy and envy in a relationship.  Isaac and Michelle will share tips and strategies as well as their own personal stories that can simplify and clarify a subject that can get kind of murky.
The Challenge 
  1. Fight envy by finding 3 things in your relationship that you are grateful for.
