ashow :: tues, friday true facts :: thurs posters :: http://store.zefrank.com
Im really in love with this girl, she is older and is in a commited relationship with someone else. Im envious of th relationship her partner has with her, but he lives in another city so he doesn't get to spend nearly the same amount of time that I get to spend with her. So he's jealous of the time I get to spend with her. I think to fight it I just appreciate the fact that I can spend time in good company, that makes me happy and make her happy too-- And not stirring trouble keeps everyone content. But yeah it's a fight to eliminate the discomfort of feeling envy when really things could be better if the outlook was different. It's a battle because outlooks don't just change upon your will. You gotta build a space of comfort to settle in with a new (and hopefully more peaceful) point of view. Love everyone
Zefrank, I love you. And miss you. I don't frequently feel envy any more. I wallow in a feeling of never being good enough to deserve what others have. I'm always jealous. So jealous it consumes me. So jealous it anchors me onto that inward anger and pull me under. So jealous it feels like my heart might explode or I'll forget how to breathe. It holds me, binds me, and won't let go. Really though, I'm the one who won't let go.
ze, I sincerely miss you. Your videos are a secret happy place that helps me literally every time.
Envy is over things and jealousy is over people
I miss you Ze… :(
when it's about love you feel both I feel envy for the guy who is now with who I thought would always be my love and jealousy for having been replaced by said love. Needless to say, life sucks

What works for me is the quote from Emerson. There is a time in every man's education when he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance; imitation is suicide; that he must take himself for better, for worse, as his portion.
In my thinking, envy can also exist as a form of regret. That's what destructs me most. If I am envious of something someone has in the present, I won't feel as bad because I know the separation between us is only hard work or luck that leads to the thing he or she had. But envy also exists in the past, and it is the feeling that history is permanently imprinted in time that saddens me. "I missed my great opportunity to have what he or she had". You can't do anything. But that envy belongs also to the past- it doesn't change. So it is more comforting to focus on some present envying and turn them into motivation.
"Shut your Envy Hole"!!! Wow what a fucking poet. So honest. Thanks man.
Ur video sooty my nerve. Sad to see u haven't making any recently...
I guess if someone other has something that i don't it is either because they worked for it and deserve it or they are just lucky. In the first case i have opportunity to deserve that something too. In the second case i like to think that they had same probability to get lucky. Forgive me if i made any mistakes, i am not a native english speaker.
Loco the Skunk
I let it consume me because I'm an unstable sadsack and don't know any better.
Please start making these again..I need them..
I don't get jealous or envious very often. In fact, that didn't happen until some time in college. It's a rare occurrence for me. I got jealous over a friend or two--usually that was related to how my own personality was looked over or something of the sort. As for the other...I guess I have gotten a bit envious of someone that was super good at a talent: like the piano. That's because I tend to be "naturally" talented at so many things that I am not very awesome at any. With that said, I'm a happy and positive type of person so maybe that's why those negative types of feelings don't really pop up.
I write about it and hope later on I can read it and think how silly I was.
do a show on love!!!!
zefrank dont be racist towards germans, racism is for black people
wow... my name now... well then... ok
I remind myself that the person is my friend and I'm happy when they're happy. It might sound useless but I say to myself 'That's really great for them, I'm happy for their success', I find it good.
When I get envious of others, I just imagine all the good things they might be doing with their perfect life. And then I go to sleep with a feeling being miserable. The next morning I wake up with a feeling of shame. To let such insignificant thoughts, such as jealousy and envy, enter my mind.
I envy ignorance. Sounds silly I admit, but with much knowledge and awareness, comes much pain. Living in a world surrounded with people running around worrying about what size Starbucks they should order, or whether or not a latte is appropriate for the time of day, or what shoes they're wearing. It makes me envy that simplicity of mind that they themselves find so complex. It's easier to think you're right and be wrong, than to know you're right and to argue with an idiot. If you can't beat em, bash your head against a wall until you join em.
I thought Jealousy meant you wish you had something someone else has, and envy meant you wish you could take away something someone else had so they could feel your pain.
I struggle with envy daily. I would say its my strongest passion. I can't stand it when other people are ahead of me. Why does life have to be so unfair?
man, i'm addicted to these videos...
Ze, whenever I have to write/give a speech or a paper, I always watch your videos first. Even if they're not related to topic of my writing, I find they always put me in a certain mindframe that allows my creativity and passion to flow. The words just come right away. So thank you.
I imagine past circumstances in which I would have been able to obtain the thing I'm envious for, or how I could have acted differently to better increase my chances of getting said thing. Then I get sad and look at everything else I don't have but want but can't get because I'm a big loser... -blech-
"Shut your envy hole."
When I have envy, I tend to bolster my own strengths and think "yeah...bet he can't do a back flip though." (I can only barley do a back flip)
I envy your voice...
Envy- jealousy- they're just a feeling based on a story of what you think you see. Instead of changing the story to a what if involving schadenfreude and diminishing someone else, change the story to one where you have someone who can talk to you about success, so be interested in their success and want to see if they did anything that could work for you too. Or change it to a story where someone else's success doesn't have a negative impact on your success. It's a human curse that we put others down to make ourselves feel better even if sometimes those other are ourselves.
When i hav envy i mope around whenever i see the person tht i envy n imagine myself in their shoes w/out doing anything about it!
Next To Nugget
Dude you're awesome XD
When I feel envy, I turn it into admiration and respect. If someone has a trait I'd like to have, I know that I should aspire to be more like them in that way. If they have something I want, I know that I should work hard if I want to achieve what they have. Weed out the negative emotions inside you by making them positive.
at 2:02 i can totally see your pupil dilation disease going on. your left pupil is HUGE and your right pupil is so itty bitty. does that cause you to have headaches or something?
To be honest I hate jealousy, most of my friends do well I feel happy for them. thats how it should be IMO. Jelousy always seems to be sutch a defensive mechanism in my train of thought, but that might just be me. And envy well I haven't experienced it in such a manor that I had to act on it so can't really give it an opion. I thinks its about the same, why should you? It may be that the person in question has worked hard for it, or has a set of skills you did not think about.
I don't remember what the name of the video was but its in his ashow series
he did a video explaining just that actually
Schadenfreude might be a german word but the whole world laughs at people headbutting walls on youtube.
These feelings result from the attachment to the inevitable, to the failure of grasping what is not really there. Everything is flowing, nothing is permanent. That is what I think about when envy strikes and jealousy makes its way to my core. In the end, treasuring the present and forgiving the past is the only thing we can avoid the spiral of darkness that these feelings will pull us to.
his left pupil is bigger than his right O.o
Envy: remind myself that I'm awesome (actually that I love the person & am happy for their pleasure) Jealousy: remind myself it (he or she) isn't really mine to begin with. Jealousy (meaning protective): fight to protect it
I fear success because I'm afraid other people will be envious... Is that a bad thing?
i pretty much wallow in selfpity and get depressed and consider suicide :) im actually serious. I have a problem. dealing with envy. I have another problem. Not being famous, adored by many, being young or talented or rich or beautiful.
I get pissed when other people get into a good conversation or wanna hangout with my close friends.
Dimension C 1375
I envy people who had a "normal" childhood. I feel like i missed out on stuff and there is nothing i can do to change it. Also my brain keeps on reminding me that and it seems to get a sick pleasure out of it. I don't know how to deal with it, except force the direction in which i am thinking and try to push the thoughts away. I also try and lie to myself that i will get something else in return, but it's just a lie
I envy those who are closer to others.
Just a shot in the dark here, you always wanted to be a stand up comedian but could never get a booking. Right?
Swedes could think of that word too, we call it skadeglädje :)
I think about it then I make a joke of it then I get over it lol
I think his first language was German, in fact.
I envy those who know what they want in life?
I think how hard it must be to maintain xyz personality trait, possession, etc. with integrity because of xyz thing I wish I had. If that doesn't work I trust that I'm missing something.
I want to kiss him
I just remember that every living creature dies alone. What you have, someday you will not have. What you feel, someday you will not feel. Gratitude is key.
I'm surprised how good his pronounciation of Schadenfreude is. He must have used it quite a few times ;)
King Fluffy Butt The wearer of th0ngs
I envy people who seem to love so easily and be happy. Im jellous of my freinds freinds. I feel like a bad person for feeling that way :C
I am a tad envious that others know and I can't seem to figure out how to send you fan mail or even a thank you for you creating these videos. (Did I spell "envious" wrong? I have no idea..)
I envy people with social lives.
"Schadenfreude" is the honostly pleasure. That is the reason why some home oder fail videos are so successfull. Greetings from Germany!
I just want things to be alright... and fun and bla
I feel so stupid and angry for feeling envy and jealousy, but not stupid enough to get over them. I am always too concerned about what other people think. That way, I just ruin experiences for myself.
Schadenfreude. literally "damage-joy".
Sometimes my Nancy smells like she needs a shower.
i envy ninjas :(
I'm envies of you because I am a time lord and I'm tired of saving the universes. D:
I like chicken
I watch this video all the time. Always.
Shut your envy hole. Lmao
Shameful joy - Lisa Simpson taught me that.
I envy those who have the ability to do magic, as well as go to Hogwarts and see something other than a old and dangerous ruin.
Envey is normal it makes us go!
I normally let myself be envious/jealous but only for a few seconds. after that I normally think myself out of it by acknowledging those feelings and the reasons why i'm having them.
I don't experience jealousy, pretty much ever. But envy? You bet, and it's an awful feeling.
I tend to treat those emotions like I treat most of my problems: I look at myself, take note of the fact that I'm alive, and decide to be happy. I find that happiness is more of a decision than anything, just deciding that I SHOULD be in a good mood usually puts me in one.
Envy is the longing for something, as in you look up to someone for having something you don't. Like good fortune or stuff. Jealousy is bad. You dislike someone for having something you don't contrary to envy. And envy is good.
I'd be a liar if I said I didn't experience envy, jealousy or anger. I do feel these things, though I don't usually hold on to them, but I don't really let them go either. Over the years of my life, with all the complicated shit that's gone down with my environment and whatnot, I've never really outwardly shown the above 3 feelings. I compress them, squeezing the juice into little bottles and then drinking the bitter brew to my own sorrow and inward anger. The scary bit is, I'm addicted to it.
At 1:21 I saw my reflection on the other side of your face. For a small moment in time I was Ze Frank's other half..... is that weird?
... If this is your plain speaking voice, it's very easy on the ears. It's pleasant.
20 videos in and i've questioned everyone and everything in my life and strongly suspect that i'm depressed and so is everyone else, oh well at least i have a nice belly button too.
Why is your belly button female?
Why do anything about envy or jealousy? It's a response to a situation out of your control. Move on. That's all one can do.
I watch hard core videos of people in the 3rd worlds to remind me how fucking lucky I am.. Seriously. Im damn lucky.
Actually, traditionally envy is wishing someone else shouldn't have what he does.
Technically it makes more sense than to have both pupils dilate at the same rate, the eye in darker condition can take in more light than the other, so is it a condition or an improvement?
How do you spell that German word?
He has an eye condition. He explains it in the video 'My Pupils' :)
i'm afraid he may have had a stroke... D:
When I have envy? I wait a while and it goes away....
Nihil Novi Sub Sole
That's where the fan fics come in my friend.
I find myself envious of Doctor Who. Apparently I act like him, but I am mad because I can't save people or the universe. The I confront my own mortality....
What do I do when I feel envious? I go do something different, such as go on my favourite websites, read a book, sleep, watch Doctor Who, etc.
And I think you're right. Don't be envious, because their fortune has its own misfortune.
Vintage balsamic vinegar! Sounds like my douche bag brother who lives in Chicago.
