mùzhīlèi (慕之累)

this expression can be literally rendered as “hard work of envy;” when people envy the work or especially the possessions of others, they accumulate unresolved (internal) pathogenic factors based in those emotional reactions. However, the ‘hard work of envy’ only begins with maintaining the ongoing suspension of those feelings of inferiority. It also creates the need to generate another flow of evaluations of the person’s own worthiness; see Beware the Rampaging Hun.
