Addressed to Women :Why jealousy is part of your character ?
I mean is it difficult for a woman to live without being jealous ? and what is the necessity of jealousy to women ?
I can't speak for all women, but I can tell you what I have experienced and believe.
There are a handful of people who are disturbed and pathologically jealous, (both men and women) but they are in the minority.
Men and women can be jealous - it's not a trait that belongs to women.
When women are jealous in a romantic relationship, it usually means they're not sure of their footing. Sometimes this is because of bad past experiences, and sometimes they are correctly reading a problem with their partner. (Remember the old expression, "Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean no one's following you"?)
A twinge of jealousy happens to everyone now and then - it's a sign we're human. If you rarely invest in anyone emotionally, you're pretty safe and may not feel it much.
Falling in love makes everyone feel insecure (fear of losing their loved one). No matter what anyone tells you, there are no exceptions.
I think my level of jealousy is pretty low, I suppose being jealous occasionally is normal. It does serve a purpose in that it causes a person to defend what they think is theirs if it is threatened. In my experience men are generally much more jealous than women.

This is the first time I have been into a relationship because I was too career focused. My boyfriend used to be a renowned playboy and I often feel the jealousy inside. I get irritated when he is with other girls because I can feel that he is flirting with them but it seemed natural to him; but it...

Nearly a week ago, I read Kylyssa's achievements, and it made me want to say mean things to her. She's way higher than me, and has mastered the art of writing. I wish there was a way of dealing with jealousy. Instead of saying mean things about her, I complimented her, but at the same time, put...
