The key to eternal bliss is to live for yourself without expecting anything from others, love yourself. When we look for happiness from any external sources, there comes a lot of miseries along with that happiness.

Jealousy generally associates with the thoughts of insecurity, fear, anger, helplessness and due to lack of possessions and safety. Jealousy is the usual experience of human relationships. People don’t express jealousy through a single emotion or a single behavior rather they show it through diverse emotions and behaviors.

Possessiveness refers to strict ownership over something. It associates with feelings of selfishness, greediness and fear of losing something. Possessiveness leads to a dissatisfied life.

People can feel jealousy for different aspects of life such as in their personal life, in professional life, in relationships, for achievements, etc. The feeling of jealousy does not affect the one by whom we are jealous of, it only degrades and imbalances our mind.

Loving yourself and finding true happiness from within us should be our prime necessities of life. the external happiness or pleasure generally associates with some negative traits like envy, jealousy, dissatisfaction and possessiveness. These feelings make our life full of anxiety.

The feeling of jealousy and possessiveness generally associates with dissatisfaction and greed. They make us distress even in a happy situation. Jealous comes when we compare ourselves with someone who might be better than us in something.

Jealous makes us forget our own achievements and resources and we start longing for what others have present. That thing may or may not be good for us at that time, for this reason, that is not present at us. Or maybe we are not capable for those things. Generally jealous feel when we compare our materialistic comfort or achievements with others. Jealous is a devil’s quality so it associates with materialistic illusions.

Likely, possessiveness develops in our minds when we overreact to owning something. The feeling of ownership for something is good, but possessiveness for that causes a nuisance for others and also for you. You’ll always feel disturbed about that thing and you’ll try to protect or keep that away from the surrounding world.

It looks good to you because you’ll feel that you’re protecting that from the people, you feel like this because you’re internally selfish. It ruins your relationships with people. We generally feel being possessive about any worldly thing or for someone whom we love the most.

Possessiveness for both is not good at all. It arises insecurities between you and your partner. But while we feel possessive for the one whom we love make them disturbed. Because they will feel that you’re restricting them from the world.

Your relationship with them will also get affected. Your feeling for being possessive for someone may be pure, but it is negatively identified by the people because it puts restrictions on others. So it is not a good thing for yourself.
