Tell us about the last time you were really, truly jealous of someone. Did you act on it? Did it hurt your relationship?

I’m not sure I’ve ever been “really, truly” jealous of someone I know. I like my mates’ Dad’s car. I’ve wanted a pair of football boots like someone else’s and I sometimes wish I had a ticket to a show that someone else had. And while I wouldn’t really describe it as jealousy (although I suppose some would), I do think friends are lucky when they’re in a job they’ve always wanted, or they’re getting what they want out of relationships, or they’re really good at a sport or playing an instrument. But those aren’t things that you would cause me to act to someone else’s detriment.

I was trying to catch your eyes.
I thought that you were trying to hide.
I was swallowing my pain,
I was swallowing my pain.
I didn’t mean to hurt you –
I’m sorry that I made you cry.
Oh my, I didn’t want to hurt you.
I’m just a jealous guy.

Jealous Guy by John Lennon
