The Humble Wants to Be on the Side of Truth, the Egotist Wants the Truth to Be on His Side

Jealousy Is Born out of Comparison

“Jealousy is comparison. And we have been taught to compare, we have been conditioned to compare, always compare. Somebody else has a better house, somebody else has a more beautiful body, somebody else has more money, somebody else has a more charismatic personality.

Why Is Gossiping so Irresistible?

Why do we judge one another? Why are we so interested in gossiping about others, in finding fault with others, in looking into others’ loopholes and defects, and how can we do differently?
