    A Strong Emotion.

    Jealousy is an extremely strong emotion for me. I over think things, I assume things, I make up stories in my head. Something in my mind is always telling me that this person is doing this and doing that and they're just using me or they're lying to me, and these thoughts are so...

    but I honestly can't control it. Like when I am in a group with Girls and guys I want all the guys attention on me. If they start talking to the other girls more I get so mad and just stop talking and feel like leaving. I hate that I am like this but it makes me sound very self...

    Jealous? Maybe...

    I've been told I'm too jealous.  But I'm a firm believer that sometimes it's perfectly normal, and even wise, to be jealous. My first boyfriend, when I was a teenager, told me I was overreacting when he commented on other girls' body parts and...

    What Treachery Is This?

    I am new to jealousy. I have never wanted for things. Although my childhood was certainly far from spartan, frugality somehow found its way beyond my knowing, and wove itself into my perspective upon the world. Want for nothing; never be disappointed for the not having; no...

    Your not interested in them, only ME!

    It's possibly my most toxic emotion and can easily turn me sour towards you. I tend to demand the impossible or unreasonable. Say in friendships if I feel the attention is too divided for my liking I will not like that at all. It's different if we are not close, but if we are, it...

    when it comes to my relationship. I don't like my boyfriend to even look at other girls. I tell him it's because I'm insecure, which may be the case, but he cheated on his last girlfriend so maybe I'm just worried he'll do the same. But all girls besides family get cut out of...

    I always get jealous

    when I see girls that look beautiful. I totally envy them, and end up bashing myself for my own looks. It's so hard to not be so self-conscious because I constantly compare myself to others.

    Jealousy Is An Emotion, And Deserves Compassion. Action Is What Counts.

    Jealousy, at its core, stems from insecurity, low self esteem, and a feeling that good things are finite and fear there won't be enough for you. I have suffered from low self esteem and insecurity since I was a kid. I was incredibly socially awkward and suffered from a mood...
