Can you perhaps tell me whether jealousy equals insecurity.

There's no simple answer even though that might look like a simple question. As almost mad says, jealousy often arises from insecurity, but the issue is more complex than that. Its not an excuse fo behaving jealously. But counselling / therapy, addressing problems of insecurities / low self-esteem, etc., can be very helpful in dealing with problems of jealousy

i cant say that it equals insecurity, but i think that insecurity is what leads a lot of people to be jelous. maybe not on the surface. but if you look at the root of the problem, u will find insecurities. But i dont think that one should use the excuse of being insecure when they accused of being jelous. Its not nice, espesially when it leads people to do hurtful things. Also it is self detroying.then again, im extremely insecure, but ive never been a jelous person.
