Until now. Jealousy is quite the ugly green little monster. I’m sure you’d agree. I picture it withering and seething and slithering around like a snake. I picture it ready to pounce on some unsuspecting, poor victim. I picture it ready to curl itself, like a snake would, around said victim’s neck for a long sleep. I’ve tried to push this jealousy from my mind.
I don’t like being a jealous person; it leaves a bottomless-pit feeling in the, well, pit of your stomach. And then there's the sort of vague jealousy that sometimes creeps in out of nowhere. You know, those times you find yourself jealous of someone you don't even know and have no right to be jealous of...and still...you're jealous of her. You can't help but feel the green ooze of jealousy seep out of every single one of your pores.
So, I'm wondering: Is it just human nature to be jealous? Or does society program us to develop those green eyes of jealousy? Are you a jealous person, friends? How have you overcome jealousy in the past? Any tips? xoxo
