How do you get over the jealousy?
It is a bit wrenching for me to admit that I am jealous of SD21, but here it is.
I am jealous because, it seems, my DH loves her above all else. Even after all these years and the crappy way she has treated him and how good I have been to him, she still seems to be No. 1.
SD21 took a long trip to California over Christmas break this year. I of course was told nothing about this.
But I discovered DH bought her a three-piece set of luggage for this trip. (while I have to make due with old luggage pieces that don't match for any trip I might take)
Also, she is a college student. How does she have the money for a long trip? (I never took long vacations to another state while I was in college, I couldn't afford it)
And I discovered DH was helping her find a hotel, which likely means he paid a good portion. She was giving him a list of her wants in terms of what the hotel offers, and he was promising to find what she wanted. (when we travel we have to stay at inexpensive places that typically do not have amenities like a pool, etc.)
DH was helping SD plan this trip and buying her luggage back in November, I presume as some sort of Christmas "reward." (meanwhile for my Christmas I got from him a gift card bought on Christmas Eve. That's it)
I know there are a lot of issues here, most of them surrounding DH, but it eats at me that SD gets the best of him and I get the leftovers, if there are any.
