In the spirit of really trying to write in my blog
daily (I am coming back to this blog post 2 YEARS LATER so I can safely say that I’ve failed in writing in my blog daily), I’ve decided to try some writing prompts. Today’s writing prompt is about that infamous green-eyed monster – jealousy. What makes me jealous? Admittedly, I am a very jealous person even though I try my hardest not to be. Blame it on my insecurities about myself, I guess. I am only human. While I get very jealous about how pretty others are compared to me, there is always one subject that gets me riled up – my fiance (he’s my husband now).
Obviously he wouldn’t be my
fiance husband if he didn’t want to be with me. But, I have the issue of thinking knowing that every single woman on the face of the earth has a thing for him. This of course has caused many major issues in the past and fortunately I have gotten so much better about that (or so I like to think), but boy did it get bad sometimes.
I like to think that jealousy can be a good thing at times. Of course, too much too often can lead you down a disastrous road, but it’s nice to keep yourself in check. For me, a little bit of jealousy is just what I need to re-evaluate my life and my relationships. If I am really that jealous over the way someone looks can I do something to make my appearance better? Probably gussying up once in a while instead of just throwing on the first pair of pants I come across might make me.
Something that I have learned though is this. Other women may make me jealous, but he’s my husband for a reason. Seriously, I have the biggest issues with insecurities but my husband kindly reminds me every time I start to let my emotions get the best of me that he chose me. No one else. Okay, it’s hard to see that sometimes but, take a few deep breaths and snuggle to him a little closer that night. Your insecurities will fly away once he sleepily puts his arm around you. It’s in those moments that I remember that I am his. And it is one of the most beautiful things in the world.
Now, the only jealousy issues I have is when someone gets way more food than me.
So readers, what makes you jealous and what is the best advice you can give someone who gets jealous easily?
