Being jealous is wanting to keep what you have and guarding it from other people. Being possessive. Not wanting others to touch your stuff.

Jealousy is very often confused with envy (the desire to be like someone else, or have their possessions), but they are not the same.

This is a completely erroneous statement. Jealously is being protective and guarding of what you have. The desire for what others have is envy, not jealousy.
