Jealousy is a common sense at all: it is not considered a positive feeling, especially because it can easily lead to irritating attitudes and detrimental to the welfare of a relationship, be it a couple, friends, or relatives. We are jealous when someone touches our objects if a person looks at our partner in a certain way if a colleague is more competent than us at work.
