JEALOUSY: The Killer Emotion
JEALOUSY: THE KILLER EMOTION
Is YOUR jealousy causing you to feel scared and afraid that your partner, spouse or lover is going to leave you for someone else and you'll end up alone?
Is YOUR partner's out-of-control jealousy and rapid questions about where you've been, who you've been with and what you were doing-- driving you crazy?
Nothing can ruin a relationship or marriage faster than jealously. Jealousy creates anxiety, anger, loneliness, hate, fear. No one thinks clearly when jealous.
Having a relationship with a jealous person is tough. The jealous person acts entrusting or unworthy. Jealousy makes the person unattractive, even repulsive.
Jealousy is one of the strongest emotions that can motivate vicious revenge, murder and can even breed wars. Everyone is susceptible to jealousy in many forms, whether it be sibling rivalry, or envy of a co-worker. The strongest and most recognizable form of jealousy is found in romantic relationships. No one exactly knows the cause of romantic jealousy; it manifests itself in many different ways and has been covered extensively in much literature.
Jealousy is the emotion that typically refers to the negative thoughts and feelings of insecurity, fear, and anxiety over an anticipated loss of something that the person values, particularly in a human connection.
We think of jealousy as a single emotion, but actually it is a whole bundle of mix feelings that tend to get stumbled together. Jealousy can manifest as anger, fear, hurt, betrayal, anxiety, agitation, sadness, paranoia, depression, loneliness, envy, coveting, feeling powerless, feeling inadequate, feeling excluded.
But when this familiar experience in human relationships gets out of control and jealousy controls you, you can never imagine what you can do or what you did only after such a horrific reaction.
THE ‘FEMECIDE’ ISSUE
Peru: Crimes of passion: Source: IPS
Near to 70 percent of all the women killed in one year in Peru died at the hands of their husbands, partners, lovers or boyfriends, and the murders were committed at home or in a love-place where couples usually visited.
Violence against women has reached alert levels in Latin America. More than 300 women have been murdered in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, in the last 11 years. In Guatemala, 500 women suffered the same fate in the 2000-2004 periods.
Peru's case is dramatic to the point that people have begun to talk of "femicide," or the murder of a person based on the fact of the victim's being female.
According to the study "Violence Against Women: Femicide in Peru," carried out by Amnesty International-Peru and the non-governmental Flora Tristán Centre for Peruvian Women, femicide in this country takes the shape of domestic violence.
The media tends to describe killings resulting from domestic violence as "crimes of passion," because the culprits usually claim to have committed them out of jealousy or because the relationship had broken up.

The most well-known “crime of passion” in the Philippines, could very well be the murder of Elsa Santos Castillo by Stephen Mark Whisenhunt. Whisenhunt and Castillo had an affair, although both were already married to other people.
On September 24, 1993, Castillo approached Whisenhunt and wanted to go separate ways. Whisenhunt totally disagreed and out of anger and betrayal stabbed and killed Castillo in his condo. He then dismembered her body and threw away the different body parts along the road to Bagac, Bataan.
The mutilated parts were later recovered by different persons in different places, spawning the term “chop-chop lady”. The Pasig City Regional Trial Court found Whisenhunt guilty of murder and sentenced him to reclusion perpetua.
