Today’s Daily Prompt: Tell us about the last time you were really, truly jealous of someone. Did you act on it? Did it hurt your relationship?
I must admit to spending sometime trying to put how ego driven jealousy is in words. It is truly a waste of time and energy and seriously, there are much more uplifting things to do than to run around acting on jealousy.
I must admit to having been jealous at times throughout my life, but never enough to actually have done something about it. I think the most I have ever done about it is actually admitting having jealous feelings at those particular moments…but, anyway, this quotation certainly sums the emotion of jealousy up so very well;
“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 are almost incompatible; one emotion hardly leaves room for the other.”
― Robert A. Heinlein, Stranger in a Strange Land
