The love sickness, Jealousy, teaches maturity

One day before Friday the 13th and two days before St. Valentine’s Day, February 14th, Thomas Moore writes about the purpose of jealousy, "Schooled in Jealousy" for WebMD. Based on his own experiences, Moore suggests "Jealousy forces you to consider one of the great conundrums that every person faces: how to want another person madly and at the same time grant her her freedom as a person with her own life and fate. You can't learn this from a book or a counseling session. Jealousy can teach you, but only if you are able to go through it to the end."

Moore’s advice is under the heading, "Modern Love: Sex, Relationships & Your Health — Psychology Today experts talk, share and give advice on mating, dating, and relating." Readers are invited to post comments about Moore’s observations.
