Counselling for Jealousy Issues

Jealousy is a complex emotion that people can experience from early childhood throughout the rest of their lives. Feelings of jealousy may be either positive or negative. Both the perpetrator and the recipient of jealousy can experience the negative consequences. The person feeling jealous of another individual commonly denies this emotion. A typical reaction is: “Who, me? I’m not jealous!” Denial of the feeling of jealousy can lead to self-defeating behaviors that others might overlook.

To be Loved is to be Known and to Be Known is to be Loved

To be known is to be loved and to be loved is to be known. And, otherwise what is the point in doing either one of them in the first place? I want to be known. . . (from the video below “Woman at the Well”). Do you feel known? Truly known by another? Do you yearn for that. Do you yearn for the kind of love that knows you through and through, a love that doesn’t hesitate despite anything it finds in you. Recently, I discovered this powerful video and was reminded of the stunning truth about your deepest longing for unconditional love. The dramatic poetry presentation is based on the historical event recorded in John 4—Jesus’ conversation with a woman at a well in Samaria. The woman was startled when Jesus broke cultural taboos to ask her for a drink. The poet in the video gives voice to this Samaritan, an outcast, deemed unclean. Do not miss this video. Watch it. Then watch it a second time. Let the truth of it sink in. This is not just an interesting philosophy, this is reality!
