Can you still be friends with someone you envy? Hi guys, I have a close dear friend that for 7 years that i've known i've been envying her for her energy, experience, detachment and lucidity. I've been intimidated by her and i know that envy and dear friend do not go well together but im only admitting this now. I've always blamed myself for it and pushed it under the covers because i always felt that i have a lot to learn from this person and do care deeply for her for the way she helped me along the way. I felt bad about feeling it and i ended up hiding stuff from her because i feared judgement. She accused me of inauthenticity. My question is: Can you still be friends/close (emotionally) with someone that you have these feelings towards? I know its me, my lack of self esteem, the fact that i consider her better, my own issues. But i've always felt like every man, once they knew her, would forget about me. Do you tell someone these feelings? And being on the receiving end, wouldnt it be unconfortable that your way of being intimidates your friend? Thank youu
