I Have Jealousy Issues

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 642 People

    I have jealousy issues with people.

    I hate that they can have things that I can't. You only live once, and sometimes you don't get to experience what they have. It makes me feel upset. I believe that you work for what you have, but it hard because there is a lot of stuff around you that you want.

    Its really ad when your crush names off his

    contacts list and they're mostly girls with hearts next to. He says he likes to talk to them. Yeah right bullshit. It makes me wanna cry. And I cut so it makes me wanna cut too. A lot of things make me wanna cry and cut but I sometimes do.

    And Hiding From This.... Won't Do A Damn Bit Of Good.

    I hate the fact that I get jealous. In the past, my jealously was justified, because it was more being sick of getting ignored by a boyfriend. Introducing me as a friend, and then working an entire shift with him, and he doesn't even look at me, say hi....nothing, just walks...
