Jealousy. The act of wanting what someone else has.

If we were to be honest, all of us have felt the sting of jealousy.  After all, I think there is alot to be jealous of.  Here is my list:

  1. The prior partner is our current partner's first love.
  2. The prior partner shares biological children with our partner.  That bond cannot be replaced.
  3. The kids demand a lot of attention.
  4. The kids are top of mind.
  5. We are saddled with child support/alimony payments, while the ex appears to be living the high life.  (I should be the one living the high life!)
  6. Even my spouse's career takes a top position over me.

Do any of these feel familiar?  Let's have a frank conversation and discuss solutions.
