Really well written piece, Tara. It opened up a flood of memories for me because jealousy is a stubborn, maddening beast. In my experience it feels like a hostage situation, as it is based on someone’s past experiences rather the realities of the present. It was never my actual problem and I refuse to ever entertain it again. However, you made great points here and depending on the severity of insecurities that prompt the jealous behavior, a healthy pattern of trust and affection can help.
