Let's play the envy game. Ready?

Picture someone you envy.
Bring to mind the thing about them that you secretly want for yourself.
It could be their wealth, intellect, looks, or spouse.

You get to have the thing you desire, but only on the condition that you inherit all other aspects of the person's life.
All of their problems, insecurities, vices, and anxieties.
You have to consider the full context of their lives, no cherry-picking the good parts.

Are you still willing to play?
