She Came To Stay

Today I told my therapist that I worry I’m bad at non-monogamy because I get jealous and because it seems to be more of an effort for me than for so many other people I’m exposed to. 

She said that a lot of non-monogamous people experience these things at some point and that I’m just experiencing it now. Then she reminded me that Simone de Beauvoir never used to get jealous until she did. 

I never thought that story would make me feel better, but it did.
