The BeastYes, I admit it. I can be the jealous type. I'm sure it's the Scorpio in me, I can't help myself.
Really though, this is a trait I'm working to remove from my repatoire. I don't like myself when I become possessed by jealousy. It has a horrible effect on me. I resemble Linda Blair in The Exorcist.
When I realized the origin of my jealous feelings, I understood what an ugly emotion it is. First of all, it really has absolutely nothing to do with the woman my jealousy is directed towards. It's fueled by my own inner monster. The one who feeds off of my own insecurity and sense of inadequacy. Seriously, is that something I want to put on display?
I can't say I've defeated the beast. But I've definitely put it on a restricted calorie diet.
