Re: RB - On jealousy and insecurity
When it comes to jealousy and women, I honestly don't care. If another guy likes my girl, whatever. That just means that he likes what I like. When I was with my ex, I was flattered when other guys tried to hit on her. I did keep her, however, because I was a great boyfriend for her, and when I mean great I mean a constant kiss-ass to someone who was mega obsessive about church and 5 year old humor.
However, when it comes to jealousy and other men, I will have problems from occassion to occassion. I can't help it when I want to be in the position that a successful man is in. However, I use that jealousy and frustration to fuel me and try to make myself even better than I am right now. So far, it has worked very well in terms of motivating me and driving me further.
