Jealousy is not wrong depend on how you build yourself. I think the main reason for jealousy is to make you more confident and be more strong. I sometimes jealous with people around but I didnt take it negatively. I think positively. Especially when working. I will work and be smart too. :)

I think when somebody is in love they just tend to become over possessive which tends to jealousy. And the person doesn't like it when he/she see's its spouse with someone else. And i think that this is worng and should be taken under control.

I do not find that jealousy is necessarily a bad thing. For "Our God is a Jealous God" I think the problems arise when one is envious / covetous and paranoid.

Jealousy is a negative fear induced emotion, that brings on anger. Jealousy is one based in fear of loss, or feelings of lack. If you are jealous of what someone else has, you are focusing on the idea that someone has something you do not and so are focused on your own lack, which is causing you to feel bad, when you feel bad you get upset. When it is in a relationship it can be a sign that one partner is not secure in the feelings their partner has for them. Or can show a serious insecurity within themselves showing that they need to work on their own self image. This then can create trust issues, and lead to arguments, and hurt feelings. so it is a negative attitude.

Jealous is a negative attitude. A person with jelous never appraise or expect good of others. A jelous person always store readymade logic in his/her brain so he/she always against the success of betterment of other person. Jealous destroy morality and good mannter of a person who feel jealous in everything of other people.
