Envy: v. to desire another’s (possessions and/or characteristics) and/or (luck and/or circumstances) without sensing angry resentment
Envy is just another word for jealousy unless you take out the angry resentment which jealousy should have but envy should not.
You can be envious of another without feeling resentful or thinking that what another has is unfair or unjust and feeling angry about it.
Envy is to desire what someone else has but not feeling that what they have is unfair or unjust and that they don’t deserve what they have. Envy is jealousy without the angry resentment.
