    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

    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 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...

    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...

    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.
