When I was a teenager I read a one sentence quote, “Love is not always a sign of being in love”. Immature that I was, I disagreed.
Now that I’m now in my 30s and have been through a lot emotional experiences, I could relate to whoever wrote that short piece.
I believe jealousy is also stemmed from insecurity, not because you’re in love. Insecurity is selfishness, not love. A jealous husband will physically or emotionally hurt his wife if he suspected her of cheating on him.
We should not hurt the ones we love. This is true love. True love trusts. But if trust is wrecked, or if the one you love is obviously cheating on you, then that’s the time to be jealous, but hurting the guilty one should be avoided.
