Tell us about the last time you were really truly jealous of someone. Did you act on it? Did it hurt your relationship?
I cannot recall ever being jealous of anyone. I remember when I was in grade two I was fascinated by a three strand fake pearl necklace worn by a classmate of mine. I liked it and wished I had one of those. I did not have any ill-feeling towards her.
I never mentioned it to my Mom or Dad about it. Had I mentioned it, my Mom would not have paid any attention and my Dad probably would think for a few minutes and observe me for a day or two. If I failed to mention it a second time, he’d be glad and would say to himself,”it was a passing fancy and there was no need to worry.”
