Jealousy and envy are not the same. Envy is wanting something someone else has but you don’t; it’s a two-person thing. Whereas jealousy is the fear of losing something, usually someone, that you have to another; it’s a three-person thing, a triangle. To explore these powerful energies in a genuinely depth psychological way we need look at them as events not ideas. So there need to be stories: traditional, mythic stories and our own stories--stories that no only deepen our understanding of ourselves but also of the desires and needs of the others involved in the stories.
