Great article! I definitely agree when you said, "Women envy other women because they have not learned how to recognize and channel their internal desires, feelings and goals into physical, tangible realities that are uniquely their own." I sometimes feel this way, but not just to women. I am always amazed and a bit envious by people who can do things that I can't, but I don't think that diminished my thoughts on self worth. Sometimes I use it as an incentive to try it myself

Great article Cassandra! As for body image, I had the opposite problem. From 16 yrs old to 30 years old, I was (90 lbs.)a size 0 and still remain only 5 ft even. I envied the taller, curvy girls because they had a figure while I still had the body of a boy and had to shop in the KIDS section!! Munchkin, smurf, etc were demeaning and it was difficult to get anyone to take me seriously. It got so bad that I became an angry introverted person who yelled and insulted strangers before they could do it to me. At 30 yrs old, much to my delight, I put away the t-shirt and got a 36C bra!! I can fit into size 7/9 pants!! Now at 40 yrs old, I have a 36, 26, 34 figure!! My weight fluctuates between 113 and 121. I am thrilled!! Since I was a little girl, I've always wanted to have butt and boobs!! So to all of you beautiful, big curvy women--I ENVIED YOU FOR 30 YEARS!! Love your figure and yourself because you. are. gorgeous!

Very good article. Who wants to be young when the young are full of uncertainties and doubts about themselves. As we grow older we tend to have achievements that boost our confidence and belief in ourselves, thus, we don't have a reason to envy other women. That is, of course, if we've used that time to make a difference.

They envy others maybe because of they are not the same or they are looking at the outside appearance of the person....They are looking at there size and beauty and that's could be the possible reason why they envy others who is not the same to them...

Hi ladies, I agree with all of you. When I was very young and first married. He told me I had to be thin and beautiful every day. Well, I am no longer married to him and I love the way I look. i am 45 and a full figuer woman and I also have a man in my life that loves me for me. We need to teach the young girls and women that thay are beautiful no matter what.

Agreed-- great article. It's hard not to compare yourself to other women, and you need to realize that even if you don't think so, other women envy you for something you are or do. It's difficult, but be happy with who you are and appreciate the differences in others :)
