The psychodrama of envy: throw the first stone if you dare!

  • Rosa Cukier
Keywords: envy, evil eye, psychodrama, self-esteem, narcissism

Abstract

Envy is a human universal and timeless phenomenon. It belongs to the structure of the human psyche and acts on human culture and social organization. It is one of the biggest taboos of humanity, perhaps only equivalent to sexuality in the nineteenth century. Prohibited by the Bible, as a deadly sin, it must be kept hidden, which makes its study indirect and difficult. Envy lies usually behind ideologies that preach equality, and has historically motivated crimes, policies and revolutions. Well, we are all different; we must learn to deal with these differences. Is it possible? How to live better with the crucial injustice of human exis tence? What to do when we feel envious? How to deal with the envy of others? And about the "evil eye", is it dangerous? These are the questions that persuade me to research this topic. That's why I also propose the Psychosociodrama of Envy, hoping that we do not remain silent over shameful themes, but, instead, learn together to deal with such hard issues.
