I had a novelette written, but it all boiled down to this one sentence:

When something hurts, it is much easier to want to take the source of the pain away, rather than take the time to work through it.

I found it more valuable to do the work needed to get through my envy and insecurity (not that I'm done by a longshot), but I can understand the pain being too great for some.
Dramatis personae:
Me: Mono. Divorced, 2 kids (DanceGirl & PokéGirl), 2 cats, 1 house, many projects.
Chops: My partner. Poly, divorced, 2 kids.
Xena, Curls: Two of Chops' other partners. In a triad together.
Choplet: Chops' son
Noa, CheeseGirl: Other folks in Chops' life, varying relationship levels
