With Sir Steve laid up with a gimpy foot -- it has given me lots of time to think. I pride myself on being understanding and accepting of other people's feelings... and in return I expect the same understanding.
When relationships end -- and sometimes as they are ending -- jealousy rears it's nasty head. It's not a pretty emotion. It is a black hole that just swallows you up -- forget green eyed monster.
Every new relationship comes with a mess of 'extra characters' -- it's certainly not a 'one man show' so to speak. And the more 'characters' involved the more chance of jealousy showing up like an uninvited guest to a dinner party.
We are dealing with some jealousy .......... despite all our efforts to prevent it. Sometimes it just can't be helped ya know??
There's been a fair amount of whining and acting out.
There has been a fair amount of pushing me out of the way.
There's even been some foot stamping..........
I suggested to Sir Steve that some extra attention and loving might be in order...
I have been stepping back to make sure there was room for snuggling........
And slowly but surely I think things are turning around............ the jealous one is Lady ... Sir Steve's black lab -- it has been funny watching her push between us -- whine and yes even stamp her feet from time to time....... who knew a family pet would become jealous of the 'other woman' ???
