A feeling or emotion usually mistaken for envy. Jealousy is kind of similar to envy but Jealousy is more inclined to the 'romantic' aspect and Envy is for material possessions.

You are jealous over romantic things others have that you don't; or that may be taken away from you (even by a split second).

- Jealousy is triggered by the threat of separation from, or loss of, a romantic partner
- a person becomes jealous because they perceive someone else as having something they don't believe they can have, so they feel that they are inadequate, that is why they become angry with that individual and try either conspicuously or inconspicuously to sabotage them because they are trying to take something away from them, to feel equal to them.
- While jealousy and envy are similar, they differ in that jealousy is about something one has and is afraid of losing, while envy is about something one does not have and either wants to acquire or to prevent another from getting.

Coveting another person's life and/or material possessions.An extremely destructive emotion. It is not fuelled by love. It is fuelled by the fear of failure.
Jealousy destroys friendships and prevents people from experiencing real happiness.

The feeling people get when they cant be like you! They wish they had your looks, talent and material possessions but they don't.. so they badmouth you instead to level the playing field. When they do this they usually don't tell the truth about anything either. Theres a difference between plain jealousy and constructive criticism.
