7 Deadly Sins- Envy

(54/365) As an Italian, i've heard of "the evil eye" many a times, although i've never gone so far as putting a bowl of water on my head with olive oil in it, in order to tell if i was affected by such an infliction. I feel like out of all the 7 sins, i can connect to this one the most. I'm an envious person, mostly (as portrayed through this image) of other peoples bodies. I'm just not... Good enough in my own eyes. There are many things about my body that i wish i could change.

 

What wikipedia has to say on Envy:

 

"Envy is a sin of flesh.Envy (evil eye) is among the things that come from the heart, defiling a person.The whole body is full of darkness when the eye, the lamp of body, is bad.Envy ruins the body health because it makes the bone rot."
