"JEALOUSLY" is a sign of low self esteem and weakness.
So when you want to "control" it, just build on the two I mentioned.

Haha..that's just a waste of time. Trust me, you won't gain anything from being jealous.

no it's not like I get angry, i think it's a lack of trust more than jealousy, my ex-girlfriend cheated on me. but that time i did get angry
Report as
cheating is cause to have lack of trust and be angry, imo and probably jealous too. if that is only why you exhibited jealousy then overall it is justified, imo.

you cant control others, to do such a thing is impossible, they must change on their own, jealousy is a vile elixer that only taints one's mind, as long as you do not allow yourself to be jealous, then you can simply tune out the people in your life who allow it to taint them, if you can offer them a way out, then great, if you cant, then dont attempt to offer your hand, you will simply be pulled in, and you will drown with them

exactly i am getting pulled in and dragged down, both of em! i think if peeps rationalized why they feel like that they could solve it, or help make it better. Great reply, preppyboy, thanks.

being jealous has many psychological reasons. you can't just say one reason and expand it to everyone but mostly it's caused by the atmosphere people grow up in and their beliefs

i'd like to be able to counsel the whomevers as to not get to that point, it is silly and makes them look bad to myself and others even if they are good peeps.

Jealousy is an emotional response. It is impossible to control your emotions. What a person CAN do is control their actions. We do not have to let our emotions dictate our response. It is possible to feel jealous and still act in a reasonable and responsible way, and I have.
