Hiya lovelies... Thank God it's Monday *bats eyelashes* oya if you're happy it's Monday do like this \_/.. Hehehe see I'm excited oh, because I have say three months to the end of my service year so I need the days to roll by fast.
Today we would be continuing the series on jealousy and if you missed last week's, click here.
2. Jealousy in friendship.
Aha! Here we are. When we say jealousy, here is what comes to mind readily; two people in a relationship, often a romantic relationship.
I've heard it over and over again that it is normal to exhibit a lil jealousy in a relationship but since jealousy is a negative emotion and like Napoleon Hill stated "the presence of a single negative in your conscious mind is sufficient to destroy all the change of constructive aid from your subconscious mind", there are 1001 ways to show that you care other than exhibiting jealousy.
Without trying to brag or sound modest, I honestly can't remember exhibiting jealousy in all my relationships, past or present.. It doesn't work for me.
I had a close pal whose boyfi banned her from having body contact with a guy (hugging, shaking etc). She didn't have a life as he was practically everywhere she was, the only time she could breathe was when she was sleeping and each time I told her to break up with him as he was destroying her life, she be like she has put in many hours of sex so she can't walk away *sigh*. I think he knew I didn't like him so he told her I was a bad influence.. I'm digressing here.
Snooping, keeping tabs on your partner's movement will only give you high blood pressure my dear! Why date someone you do not trust in the first place??
A dangerous form of jealousy in relationships is morbid jealousy in which the object of contention is sexual infidelity, with no claims 99% of the time (imagine!). Here one partner holds the delusion that their partner is unfaithful. People who suffer from morbid jealousy stalk their partner and forms of morbid jealousy are obsession and delusion.
Till next week when we conclude the jealousy post, remember that jealousy is not a form of affection, don't be deceived!!
