    This is not about me being jealous over a girl

    that likes the same guy or anything. It's more that I'm jealous of my sister. I feel like she is more wanted than I am and I shouldn't be feeling that way. I don't want to feel this way. Honestly I am glad for her, but for some reason I feel that everyone likes her more than me...

    I have always laughed at people getting extremely jealous unreasonably; like just because their guy is talking to another girl or vice versa and they get too agitated about it. I thought that was really silly. Like, if they're already in a relationship, why be jealous? You...

    One reason that makes me scared about loving

    someone. I end up thinking that they are talking to someone else, because it has been done before in every one of my relationships. It scares me to death to fall in love.

    and her... She is one of the guys gf but I used to be one of the guys not her. Now it irritates me when ever they bring her up or when his friends say my bf should move in with her because she needs a roommate and that they should car pool because they work close by.

    I admit I get jealous at times.

    Even when a guy I'm just talking to as a friend is close to another girl. It makes me feel upset. I get jealous when I see people getting what I've been wishing for. I guess I'm just human.

    Jealousy is one of the things

    that can destroy you from within. When you are in love, love with everything you have! Don't try to love with limits on trust!!! You can only truly love someone you respect and admire. Don't let the background noise distract you from being with the one who you love.
