Jealousy

What does it mean to you?

What has it meant to you or to someone in your present/past?

Discuss.

I once was obsessed with a girl that I had been dating who finally dumped me. Unfortunately, we lived next door to each other so I had to see the various "new" guys coming to pick her up for dates....and then there were the inevitable sleep overs...cars that stayed there till the next morning. That was brutally hard.

I'm not jealous. Neither is my wife, and neither of us has really been tempted to stray. I figgered out when I was a teen that jealousy was wasted energy. I wish more people understood this, it's be a lot nicer world!

Jealousy is the wanting of anothers pleasure. Insecurity. Negative living (attitude). No appreciation for what has been gifted to them.

Jealousy festers in the mind of the person, only to multiply itself many times over until the victim cannot withstand the feeling. It takes over. It's controlling. It's driven. It attacks.

Stand back and let it whiz right by you. And revel in the fact that you are not a victim of its power.

There was this girl at my job who I liked a lot.. infact most everybody she worked with liked her 'a lot'. One of her coworkers was a guy who was a 'playya' -the kind of guy with the fearless smooth talk, the walk, the designer clothes, everything.. -you could tell this kid fashioned himself a professional and experienced ladies man. I remember he used to take this girl out to eat dinner during the night shift and it drove me nutz while they were gone together.. and then evntually I let it go, and it didn't bother me so much anymore. Long story short, nothing ever happened between them.. but as for 'me' -the quite bookish guy, *I* ended up being the lucky man. Turns out foxey brown wasn't into the playaz/ womaniser type (she knew enough to know better) -- turns out she was into the quite bookish guys, like 'me'.. Some times the good guys get some.

oh, yeah to this day that guy with the designer clothes and the fancy physique is 'insanely' jealous.. he is literally insane now.

Devil Woman is extremely jealous and posessive. With no behaviour on my part to stimulate this, she will have disurbing dreams of my dalliances, then wake up mad at me for running on her.

I do wish she'd believe me when I tell her it is her and only her that I have an interest in.

Being jealous means not being happy with who you are or what you have. That really sucks.

You don't need to be a jealous person to have dreams like that. My sister is eminently well-adjusted and not jealous, and she'll have dreams like that about her eminently well-adjusted (and not jealous) boyfriend. Dreams are silly things: like the one I had last night about being in a North Korean water park (had a great time!)

Don't know the details. Could be that her past holds experiences of disloyalty or even abandonment. A new history has to be created that is full of loyalty and integrity. You are building that history now. As long as the length of the bad history measure less than the good history her mind is like a trap waiting for the catch. Each day you give her reason to believe in you is softening her heart. When her heart has been made ready, she will be able to believe in you. Keep focused being determined to go the full distance in making her feel "new" again. I think it's worth it, don't you?

Reasonably accurate too! Nearly a clinical definition.

I'm not jealous and never felt jealous. I believe jealousy is close knitted with DPD. (And/Or lack of self-confidence)

Hells yeah!

She has had a history of neglectful, abusive, philandering spouses (all male). I'm her first same sex partner, we've been together for over 12 years. Early on I had to remind her often to measure me with my own yardstick, not the ones used by others. It was brutal in the early days, now she has these occasional dreams that she allows to disturb her and make her angry. Each time I go in to the supportive reasurance mode. I must admit that it does wear on me, as I've done nothing to instill these insecurities.

I've had a couple of EXTREMELY jealous girlfriends in the past. It has turned me into the most unjealous person imaginable...in terms of relationships.

I still see people who have their lives in much better order than I....I feel jealous sometimes.
