"Beware, O lord, of jealousy. It is the green-eyed monster which doth mock the meat it feeds on."
I don't need a romantic relationship right now. I don't have the time, the girl, or the circumstances needed. And yet, my emotions fail to see the logic of the situation. Thing is, several people around me have the potential to form relationships now. My mind envisions relationships with some of these people, and my heart thinks they could be very nice.
Jealousy arises even at the potential for someone else to have something I don't have.
"This, too, is vanity."
It's foolish to be jealous when you're so well provided for, as I am. Affection, I get. Love, certainly. These are things I am jealous for, yet in all actuality, I have them. I shall have to take stock of things more often when I'm feeling short-changed. It may just cheer me up.
Speaking of which... happy Easter, everyone. The power of Jesus Christ has defeated death. How do you like them apples?
