What Is Zelophobia?

By

Definition:

Zelophobia is a fear of jealousy beyond most people's fear of jealous; this is a green eyed monster that is completely irrational and/or is exaggerated beyond the situation at hand, and it can affect one's health negatively. Symptoms of zelophobia - as with many phobias - include feeling panicked, terrified, anxious and shaky.

Zelophobia originates from the Greek, with zelos meaning zeal, and phobos fear.
