    Suspicious Mates

    I am so sick and tired of getting calls from spouses/mates who are trying to find out who their husband, etc. has been talking to and why. Whether it’s because the pizza guy called to confirm my address, the plumber who needed to tell me he’s on the way, or even a relative...

    Jealousy the Root of All Evil...not Money

    Jealousy Destroys

    There is nothing that can destroy relationships more than jealousy. It can tear people apart and cause reactions that leave us wounded and scarred. It is a useless emotion. When someone is jealous it is because they lack self esteem. They become jealous of anyone who has...

    I'm Sure.

    Jealousy hurts. It really does. It tears you apart from the inside out(at least it tries) and leaves nothing of your self image intact. It makes you feel like a bad person. In fact it makes you a bad person. But really. You can't help it. Nothing hurts as bad as longing for...

    I Have It; But I Am Searching For A Cure.

    Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition. The immature mind often mistakes one for the other, or assumes that the greater the love, the greater the jealousy - in fact, they are almost incompatible; one emotion hardly leaves room for the other.”― Robert A. Heinlein...

    It Eats Away...

    At your heart, your mind, and your body. It causes loneliness and forces self-hatred. I know jealousy. I've suffered through heavy bouts of envy. It has eaten at my heart the way a dog would gnaw on a bone. It has made me horrible.

    Deadly Bedfellows

    Jealousy makes sinister bedfellows with bitterness and unforgiveness. Jealousy will not allow you to be happy but rather wallow in the sour cancer of bitterness that eats away at your soul until ultimately hatred, jealousy and bitterness makes a lethal cocktail that you drink...

    Jealousy Is A Form Of Hate

     I don't understand people who think that jealousy is love when in reality it is a form of hate, be it jealousy or envy.  I have never felt that emotion with either my first or second husband because I truly loved or love them. When one feels jealous or envy you don't...

    H Elen Keller Sees

    I think jealousy is the most lethal of emotions, it is destructive and causes you to wish evil for others and to be happy when misfortune befalls them.  Jealousy can cause a person to indulge in disbelief, breeds suspicion and feelings of not being treated fairly.  ...
