    It's a correct sentence but "envy" and "you" shouldn't be capitalized unless it's a title. Have you looked "envy" up in a dictionary?

    Yes, I know that we shouldn't capitalize E & Y over here...

    & secondly, yes! I've searched for the meaning of envy in the dictionary, but there were many different meanings related to this word, so just wanted to confirm which of the meaning will be suitable over here?

    We don't know if it will be suitable until you tell us which meaning you have in mind. Although, to be truthful, I don't know very many meanings for "envy."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
