I think feeling jealous is a terrible feeling. It makes my thoughts turn out of character and I have even acted very catty out of jealousy.
I've recently began to try and just fix the areas I find I get jealous about about.
I have a new friend in my life who seems to make comments that trigger my insecurities, he told me he loves how jealous I get.
I just shut down. I don't laugh or joke or get mad anymore but I am sort of upset he does this intentionally.
Does anyone actually like or enjoy jealousy?
I am sure he was being harmless and had no idea how these feelings have been effecting me the past few weeks. I feel a fool for having been struggling lately for something that was being done intentionally.

I never get jealous. I honestly can't remember the last time ever being jealous by something. I do get envious though.
Envy occurs when we lack a desired attribute enjoyed by another.
Jealousy occurs when something we already possess (usually a special relationship) is threatened by a third person1
