I mean as a person. You can be jealous in a perfect way, if you see your partner are flirting with somebody or something like that. I don't understand the jealously as envy. That can make you betray or overcome with somebody. I think it's better look for the balance between your space and the other person's space. Never doubt your partner if you aren't sure of that, I think.

But I have to publish a comment cause of my personal experience. I think that jealousy and envy are very different things: I don't think to be an envios person but I am very jealous. Some years ago (when me and my husband were engaged) I suffered very much for long time because I was jealous of my husband's ex girlfriend. It had become a sort of obsession. This jealousy was even more absurd because they hadn't met for many years (and still now they never meet). Fortunately with the passing of time I solved my problem (now we are married and we have two children). But in any case I hope never meet that woman... A curiosity: in Italy yellow is the colour of jealousy.
