    Ugh, jealous is a green eyed monster!

    That's what they all say, and I believe it's true. It can distort our being, play with our emotions and cause us to think too much. Well, unfortunately, I'm one of these jealous people. As my first relationship, I am or was dating a trainer....lovely...them around people all...

    I just can't help but be

    that way. I mean, I know it's an irrational feeling to be jealous because of the person you like likes someone else but god, I hate that heavy feeling. I know I don't owwn him or anything but... it's really suffocating. I wish I could just be numb to this feeling.
