Unwanted Feeling

Unwanted feeling

Poking at me since my youth

Jealousy–blinds me

I struggle to overcome

This horrible addiction

    • I have always suffered with this and really for no reason whatsoever. I wondered why I couldn’t be happy for someone else when things go well, but I am really trying hard to overcome this and feel as though I have made some progress. Slow and steady as the saying goes. 🙂

      • It is painful and insidious. I am always amazed at the countless people that tell me they are never jealous…not amazed they are never visited by this green slimy snake but astonished how it is not recognized or admitted. True one feels shame but we are human and failings come with that…not recognizing it, I feel can be dangerous to self and others.

      • Unfortunately I find is so evident in myself although I would guess that others may not see it. I am working very hard to minimize this, but as you say we are human.

      • Acknowledging it is the hardest part, the other part is shedding it…such a yucky invasive feeling…not fun…for whatever the issue is, know that you are an amzing writer, poet and human (it comes across in your writing), blessings.

      • Thank you my friend. I wish I knew where it came from because I really don’t have any reason for my jealousy, I have been truly blessed with all that I have in this live. Maybe realizing it is the first step in overcoming it. Time will tell. 🙂

  1. I finally found it is possible not to struggle against any of it..even the jealousy and neediness, etc.. I think we all have such parts. And so I have practiced embracing. It’s kinda cool.
