I was definitely jealous! Everyone understands if a child acts out when their parent seems preoccupied by a new partner, but what about when the shoe is on the other foot?
However, it is important that your adoptive mother also has to understand that she has an obligation to your feelings as well. Here are some key points to remember when navigating this fine line.

If you sense your mom is struggling, a little reassurance can go a long way.
She may realize she is hurt or feeling fearful for nothing. That does not mean that you cannot provide her reassurance.
However, you have no obligation to have your actions governed by her emotions—especially when those emotions are coming from a place of pride or jealousy. Your identity is yours to navigate if and when you choose.

However, it is also not fair to you in the least. You have to take your own journey, in your own time, in your own way, and your family will have to deal with the emotion that comes to them throughout that journey.
