“Welcome to the wonderful world of jealousy, he thought. For the price of admission, you get a splitting headache, a nearly irresistable urge to commit murder, and an inferiority complex. Yippee.”
― J.R. Ward, Dark Lover
Is jealousy all that bad?
Just because sometimes the consequences of jealously are negative it does not mean that the feeling is a bad one.
When we feel that what is our is threatened to be taken away, we feel this knot in our tummies and we just want to protect what is rightfully ours! It’s natural and instinctive…nothing to ever be ashamed of at all.
The scenarios we associate with jealously, however, are all preconceived ideas of crazy people hunting down those they think are trying to ruin their relationship or overly passive aggressive people seeking to destroy (passively) anyone who crosses their paths.
Jealousy is normal…but don’t let it go overboard!
