I've always resented people who make more money than me and the inherent unfairness of life. Even though I realize that duality and separation are inherent and inescapable properties of the physical universe that doesn't mean I have to like it. I know there is no escaping it but I still resent it.

Whenever I've resented folks for what they have, it's because I feel less than in some way, that I'm not good enough, or I don't have the brainpower, strength, personality, whatever to accomplish or to have what they have. So if I'm feeling resentful, it's not them really, it's my own stuff I need to work through and either make a choice to do something different or be grateful for what I do have and to stop obsessing about others.
