Thank you my dear. It is my superpower.My my.. u are quite a thinker.. :tongue:
Jealousy is known for being associated with abnormal and unhealthy behavior, but I don't think it implies that jealousy itself is bad or good. It is just an emotion, and emotions are not inherently good or bad. I can't really think of a example of "good" jealousy right now, but I do know that like all emotions, it is a strong motivator and reinforcement tool. Like an artist who uses anger to create a masterpiece, he or she is using a negative emotion and turning it into something positive. I think jealousy is among those lines, but its hard to categorize because jealousy's cousin, envy, looks so much alike that I can't tell the difference.nah.....I can't see anything good in being jealous, but if anyone manages to do it please post here.
This is not to say that I have not on occasion engaged in jealous behavior.“Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition. The immature mind often mistakes one for the other, or assumes that the greater the love, the greater the jealousy -- in fact, they're almost incompatible; one emotion hardly leaves room for the other. Both at once can produce unbearable turmoil...”
Jealousy is not a part of love. They knew this 1000's of years ago .. It's fundamental.4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
This is pretty much how I feel about it too and what I was gonna say. :]As I've said before in a similar thread, I believe there is a righteous type of jealousy. Such is the type that comes out when what is rightfully yours is given away (partner cheating unless open relationship is agreed upon etc.). Envy is when you lust after something that does not belong to you. There is also a jealousy that comes from insecurity which I consider to be the unhealthy type of jealousy because in that case, nothing warranted it.
