I am currently really jealous at a boy who is dating one of my friend who is a girl who I want. I know it is sinful and I am trying to overcome that. I am also friends with this boy so I am kind of torn as to what I shoudo do. This friend of mine the girl has no interest in me that way and that is fine. I guess i want to know how to overcome these feelings. I haven’t done anything bad yet just feelings.

Pray and concentrate on the positive. Be happy for your female friend and your male friend and wish them well in their relationship.

This stuff will take some time. If you don’t mind my asking, how old are you?

I am 17 as you can imagine this stuff is common for people my age though this doesn’t happen to me often
