Hello EvilMichelle,
Welcome to our forum. Please feel free to lurk, browse, etc.

Also helpful might be the following links:

Jealousy, Envy, Insecurity, Etc.
How do you achieve compersion?

The Theory of Jealousy Management
The Practice of Jealousy Management

Jealousy and the Poly Family
Kathy Labriola: Unmasking the Green-Eyed Monster
Brené Brown: the Power of Vulnerability

The feelings of insecurity you described are often closely related with jealousy itself, so I think you'll find the above links applicable to all of the difficulties you're experiencing.

You may also find journaling helpful in the way of analyzing what you're feeling. There's a Life stories and blogs board you can get into for that. And you can do tag searches for "jealousy" and "insecurity."

Hopefully the good folks here at Polyamory.com will be able to lend you the help that you need. Let us know as further thoughts and questions come to your mind.

Regards,
Kevin T., "official greeter"

Notes:

There's a *lot* of good info in Golden Nuggets. Have a look!

Please read through the guidelines if you haven't already.

Note: You needn't read every reply to your posts, especially if someone posts in a disagreeable way. Given the size and scope of the site it's hard not to run into the occasional disagreeable person. Please contact the mods if you do (or if you see any spam), and you can block the person if you want.

If you have any questions about the board itself, please private-message a mod and they'll do their best to help.

Welcome aboard!
