An excerpt from The Real Problem With Jealousy by Esquire‘s Tom Chiarella that sums jealousy and happiness and all that bullshit up pretty well if you ask me:

“Jealousy, I discovered, simply leads nowhere, if not to sadness. I don’t hand my happiness over to others with the expectation they will guard it as their own. Doesn’t mean I don’t hand it over. I do. But, even in love, maybe especially in love, your happiness is your own responsibility.”—Tom Chiarella
