    Managing jealous people and their jealousy in your life can be one of the most difficult tasks, nonetheless it's not entirely impossible. The best cure for Jealousy is proven to be Love, because the green-eyed monster cannot simply survive in the environment that is filled with love, compassion and kindness. Only Love empowers you to boomerang Jealousy back to her source, resulting in burning the Jealous person in the fury and fire of Jealousy. Love is thus the only strongest and most effective way to tame that green-eyed monster in your world.
