Eric Griggs you are 100% correct in your observation. The green eyed monster tends to manifest much more insidiously in women than in men, in my experience, but most especially in mothers.
My memoir is chock full of examples of just how fucked up a mother’s jealousy can truly get for a child, unfortunately.
I’ve often thought so as well, and the sayings, “truth is stranger than fiction”, coupled with “I couldn’t make this shit up”, have crossed my mind often... I’ve notes here and there, maybe it’s time to work on this as prose.
Thank you for your thoughts, always.
