I Have Jealousy Issues

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,651 People

    I HAD jealousy issues.

    But they came from insecurities, lack of trust and not believing in thee another. I have learnt that the best way to handle the green eye monster is to look it straight into the eyes.

    I have jealousy issues

    when I like a guy I get jealous when he comments on other girls. I don't show it but still I feel a spike. Also I get extremely jealous if I hear any of my exes seeing other women or fear hearing they might have a girlfriend while I'm still single. Does anyone else get these...

    It Ruined Everything

    I have too much insecurities. I love it when people praise me or get attracted to me. I think that was one of the reasons I made out with someone behind my bf's back. I hate my insecurity. Having someone like me or want me really made my ego better. I hate it and I regret it. I...

    I just don't like sharing people

    if I knew you for 5 years and u met my other friend y'all shouldn't become best of friend and you talk about her all day. I think it makes perfect sense but sometimes it causes me to get really sad about things. I have a problem

    The thing with jealousy is

    that it eats you inside out. You feel there is something amiss with how hungry he seemed for her in that photo. That tiny grain of bad feeling nags you until you begin creating stories in your mind which call for urgent validation. You scour whatever you can get your hands on...

    Problem is, I try not to show how jealous I am

    of someone and I end up annoying them. If I get jealous of someone, I instantly hate that person just like that. Insecurity issues

    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...

    This has come as a shock to me since,

    I have never had this "jealousy" problem before. I have been married and divorced twice, cheated on, beaten and made fun of and anything else you can think of. When my fiance and I got together we were a match made in heaven we still are, and I thank the gods for him and my kids...

    I will get jealous over the stupidest things.

    Like if I stop being friends with someone, I will still get on social media and see them hanging out with someone, and I'll get really mad because they're not allowed to have other friends. Like my jealousy, is annoying me.

    My boyfriend and I were watching basketball,

    then an uncomfortably long shot of cheerleaders smiling and jumping around for the camera filled the screen for the longest 5-10 seconds. It filled me with rage and I left for the other room. I am so jealous and insecure, I don't know what to do.

    I don't deny this. It's something I struggle

    with in every relationship I've ever had. Be it a romantic relationship or a platonic friendship. I hate sharing and I take anyone who shows even a slight interest in my loved ones as threat to my relationships. It sucks but I'm wired this way.

    I don't expect anything to come of this.

    But I, too, think it should be me and only me that she has eyes for. I don't like that she chooses to spend time with a male coworker during a lunch break when I am available. I mean, what the ****? Maybe I do think she will choose him over me. I keep myself that whatever...
