Thoughts and Feelings
Hi rabbi, I have a question. If I have bad thoughts and feelings does that make me a bad person?
For example, I gave my friend’s name for a job opportunity in my office and when he got the job I felt upset. The reason I felt upset is because my chances of being promoted were slim once my very accomplished and well known friend was hired. I never expressed the way I really felt to him or anyone else, and just pretended I was excited that he got the job. Does it make me a bad person if had bad thought or feelings yet I never acted on them?
This question also goes beyond the example I provided. Thank you in advance for your help.
