The age of the YouTube/Facebook celebrity has lead to a rise in being covetous over other people’s experiences and items which they are able to afford. When we compare ourselves to what others share on social media, we often forget to be grateful for what we have - leading to us always being in the pursuit of what others have. We always think that what the other person has is the best thing in the world - solely due to the fact that the person on the screen looks so happy in their destination/with their new purchase.
Wanting what others have can be unhealthy on multiple levels. But what makes wanting something covetous and not just a normal desire? When does it turn away from just wanting a toy/something fun to coveting something that is unhealthy?
