I need to know something. Dear readers, if you are able, please comment because I need to know more about this topic.
A guy makes some comment about jealousy to you. He has been jealous of other guys around you in the past. The comment is snuck in there and you don’t really understand it at all.
Do you brush it off, take it at face value, or become hopeful?
I am coming out of that dark place. So my reaction is to be hopeful. Am I just screwing myself over again? I’m not sure.
If I brush it off that will keep me from getting hurt again. If I take it at face value and simply accept that the guy has problems with jealousy, and it probably has nothing to do with me, that probably will keep me from getting hurt again. If I am hopeful, and it meant nothing, then I will get hurt again.
I think he’s worth the risk. I might be completely insane. I might need to take a step back and calm myself down. Here’s the thing, though. After he made the comment about jealously we had a discussion about how you can’t always control the way you feel.
I really believe that you can’t always control the way you feel. I think there’s a reason we are still talking. I think most of everything happens for a reason.
If I don’t brush it off or take it at face value, I might get hurt again. I think it’s worth the risk.
I could be just setting myself up for failure. After all, us women can uncontrollably feel jealousy, too.
