As I was responding to a post in a thread above, I started to think about this. I think there is a world of difference between envy and jealousy. To me, envy is more akin to admiration--seeing something about someone else that you want to emulate for yourself or your own life. Jealousy is a more negative feeling, to me. Though I cannot define it well, I guess I see jealousy as based more in competition/comparison than in admiration.
I'm curious--do you see envy and jealousy as synonyms or do you distinguish between them, and if so, how?
