Let's Write a Story

It's a fun game, actually, and the rules are very simple:
1) Each post should only be one sentence long. If you absolutely can't get it all into one sentence, then use two, but keep it short.
2) You may post as many times as you like, but you must wait for somebody else to post before you can do so again. (You can't post two times in a row.)
3) Remain on topic. This does not mean that you have to follow a strict storyline of any sort, but keep your contribution at least tangentially relate to the previous few.
4) Try to make it interesting.
I'll begin:
The shout penetrated my sleep, but I soon made it part of my dream.
Your turn!

When in a romantic relationship, feeling jealous up to a certain degree can be normal and healthy. However, jealousy can also be a very negative feeling which can destroy human relationships.

Jealousy is not the same thing as love. Sometimes, people think that by feeling jealous about someone, they e love them. Jealousy is not love; it’s the fear and anger of losing love. Jealousy disappears when you  truly love yourself and others for whatever experience you’re having.
We should learn to be happy with ourselves and what we have. Everyone is different, and each person has good and bad qualities. It's important to realise that each one of us has the potential to create a better future.
Talking about our problems with someone helps us feel that these jealous tendencies are a private matter.
Irrational jealousy usually stems from our own insecurities and low self-esteem. Address these issues first.
Be happy for the other person. When you are jealous, you may think, "I like that; it would be nice to have that thing or experience." When you can be happy for another person's success and happiness, you allow positive feelings to flow into your life. Instead of being angry, congratulate the other person. Feel happy for the success of your co-workers or partners, and, most importantly, don't allow jealousy to destroy your relationship or your marriage.
I have never been jealous of anyone's success or happiness, yet I was occasionally jealous in a relationship. However, it was the kind of jealousy that I could control and it was never the reason to end a relationship. How about you? Are you jealous? And if you are how do you deal with it?
