So my best friend met this amazing guy who’s super nice to her and he’s a great christian and I’m really happy for her! but lately i can’t help feeling slightly jealous of her when she shows me what he says to her and i don’t know why. i know part of it goes deeper because lately I’ve been struggling at the fact that guys just don’t like me and ive talked to my mom about it and she said their just intimidated because I’m pretty? that just doesn’t make sense to me. help?
That sounds more like envy than jealousy. Jealousy would be you worrying that he’s taking her away from you (idk if that’s the case but I’m just pointing out the difference between being jealous and having envy). It’s normal. It’s not that boys don’t like you (big big world out there), it’s that now is not the time. It’ll happen someday, but now is the perfect time to get to know yourself better and find out what you want and what God has waiting for you. Relationships for teenagers have become so sensationalized you’ll start to think maybe guys just don’t want you or there is something wrong when there isn’t.
