Maybe this is a discussion for another thread, I've been considering starting one on jealousy and insecurity.
And by the way, the things you listed that indicate a lack of emotional maturity...personally, I would say those things indicate the opposite.
I'd be interested in reading that thread.
I don't believe that I am emotionally mature. You're probably the first person to suggest that. I don't have much of an ego, so I don't have any pride or confidence (or lack of confidence). You take the good with the bad.
