Envy is a passion … an engine for psyche’s development. the feminine uses envy as the masculine uses aggression… (note this is not a gender issue – both women and men have both attributes)
The feminine starts from an egalitarian attitude – to be equal – so it asks the question of what has the other have that I don’t. This drives development.
Hence One can NOT overcome envy, one must outgrow it. This is possible only working WITH your envy, acknowledge it, relate to it. It may look and feel bad but it contain the seeds of reflection…
The worst possible response is to pretend you don’t experience it and repress it.
