    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...

    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...

    How I Overcame Jealousy

    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...

    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...
