How To Manage Your Feelings Of Jealousy?
When I mentioned earlier that “nothing you can do to stop” in case your relationship is already poisoned with jealousy, I meant it. However you can prevent that from happening and start managing it before it ruins your relationship.
Exactly! You do need to have reasonable self-knowledge. What’s important for you in a relationship and what is it that you don’t mind? What level of jealousy can you accept from your partner and how jealous you are? Know your strengths and weaknesses but more importantly know your principles and limits.
Appreciate past relationships
We are often jealous for our loved one’s ex. They create tension between couples. I wonder why. They are long in the past and should not have any effect on your current relationship. So why are we still jealous of them?
Not going to be easy but think like this. They are not competition to you, after all they are in the past. They were your luck. Whether they were nice or horrible to your partner, they missed their chance.
But they also contributed to their development, they may have changed them for the better. They made them decide to move on searching for something they truly wanted. You! They helped the both of you ( in one way or another ) to be finally together. Isn’t that amazing?
Be supportive of each other
In particular be supportive of each other’s feelings. You are a couple but still two different individuals. Your partner may naturally feel comfortable with something that you are not. Or vice versa. Talk about it and support each other, after all you are together for a reason. That reason should be love. Love is based on understanding and trust. Comfort each other.
Stop toxic habits
Checking your partner’s phone constantly or going after a girl you think your boyfriend is cheating on you with is not going to cut it for you. It will keep you anxious and will drive your partner crazy. Not only that but you will become paranoid and it will take over your life. Sooner than later you will not recognize yourself any more.

You will survive
Very important! Let’s imagine that the worst happens and all your fears come true. Yes, you will be down for a while. Yes, it will be difficult to overcome it. You may have thought that they will be the one. It’s only natural but remember!
You will survive. You will, and you know what? You will come out of it stronger. What you need to be cautious of is not bringing this jealousy into your next relationship. Don’t let it poison your mind and your future.
