My dear,

If people’s jealousy for is noticeable, then good job.

Although people are sad for the pitiful, they’re always slightly happy in that they are not in their position; they take slight delight in their betterment. You do not need much to be pitied, just failure.

Now jealousy, that must be earned. That look on the face of the envious, that needs to be earned. That resentment for you that you notice, that needs to be earned. Their jealousy proves that you are better than them, even just for the moment. It proves that they would like to be you, and that you have done something so extraordinary, that they can even see their own achievements compared to yours.

Be proud of their jealousy.

Falsely yours,
