You didn’t ask, Jack, and why would you since this topic is not one of my choosing or one of previous choices but nonetheless, I will chime in here. I have zero jealousy. Just not in my personality. If my husband had interest in another woman, or a man, I would wish him well and say goodbye. Cry, yes. Miss him, yes. But, be jealous of the person who won his heart, no.

So, jealousy wouldn’t be an issue in a, shall we say, creative relationship. However, I would rather gladly let a partner go than try to hold on or lessen our relationship by making it a smorgasbord. I have to share too much in my life. My time and my money are rarely my own. I, at least, want the one with whom I share my deepest secrets, as well as the hidden places of my body and soul, be the one piece of my life I don’t share.

That’s me. Live and let live works but love and share, doesn’t.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
