    Yes, I Get Jealous

    I admit it. I don't get ragingly jealous, just the usual "grrrrr, get your hands off my man!". I am polyamerous, I can love more than one person and don't mind my loves loving others. What I do mind is my loves giving or seeming to give more love and attention to...

    My Bestfriend

    I hated certain people when they were around my best friend. I was in the elementary back then and I was possessive of my friends, especially the one I considered the best. I owned this best friend so why are people taking him/her away from me? I knew his/her secrets more than...

    Classic Situation

    I'd never understood it when people talked of sibling jealousy. I didn't feel that way at all when my little brother was born. I loved him straight away; I wanted to see what type of person he would become. I was always aware of the way people treated me and my elder brother...

    Done

    I stopped talking to my best friend. Maybe the reason is petty but sometimes you can feel like a relationship has run it's course. I was done with him, the way he treated me and the way he acted. It's weird how we became friends especially since we both liked the same guy. The...

    I Often Find Myself Guilty of It...

    Jealousy is a powerful emotion. It is considered one of the seven deadly sins. Although I feel envy goes hand in hand with pride. At least it does with me. I'm most often envious when my pride is hurt. I'm envious of what my friends have. They don't have to fight through the...

    Loss of a friendship

    Two years ago I reconnected with an old friend that I hadn't seen in 10 years and it was amazing how much we had in common. We were both engaged, renting, had a toddler and both pregnant with our second child. We weren't working and found ourselves spending 3-4 days a week...

    I Over-came It!!!

    Jelly Jelly   I was never taught how it was like to be jealous. I was just born with this thing called human nature. Like babies you see them fighting over toys, they weren't taught to do it they just do it. And who taught us to lie? Same with jealousy. We see someone who...
