Colour me Green. Not.

 

Green colour symbolises prosperity in most cases. It also is associated with a negative feeling, ENVY.

Dictionary defines Envy as, “resentment¬†which “occurs when someone lacks another’s quality, achievement or possession and wishes that the other lacked it”

green-with-envy

 

This is the reason why it is considered bad  for widows to attend any wedding functions & a childless woman to attend any baby shower functions. It is assumed that they would envy & grudge the other person of their husband / child & harm would come to their joyous life.

But is it true always? I feel it is gross injustice. I might not be married or not have a child. I might not have the success / money my cousins / relatives have. But that does not mean I am discontented with my life & envy their success in whatever part of their life.

I love them enough to be happy in their happiness. I love myself enough to be happy with my life.

Where there is love, there is no envy. Colour me Red. Not Green.
