Kill Jealousy Before It Kills You

According to a great writer, jealousy is one of the quickest and surest ways to get dumped. Jealousy is a sign of insecurity. It indicates a lack of confidence on your part. Know some tips from the experts on how to overcome jealousy.

Jealousy in relationships

According to a great writer, jealousy is one of the quickest and surest ways to get dumped.  Jealousy is a sign of insecurity.  It indicates a lack of confidence on your part.  Never forget that women are attracted to confidence in men. If a woman realizes that you're lacking in self-confidence then she'll lose respect for you.  And if she doesn't respect you, she can't love you says a book author.

By acting in a jealous fashion, you're essentially telling her that you don't feel worthy of her love, and that you're worried she's going to find one of the many guys out there who are "better than" you.  Not to mention the fact that it's an incredibly annoying personality trait.

What is jealousy

Jealousy is not as simple as we think it is.  While we tend to perceive it as a single emotion, it is actually many different feelings lumped together.  Jealousy can manifest as:

  • depression    
  • fear
  • hurt
  • anger
  • betrayal
  • sadness
  • loneliness
  • envy
  • anxiety
  • covetousness
  • exclusion

An spiritual counselor and a book author points out that jealousy is "a negative force that poisons the soul and affects the emotional balance."


Furthermore, he added that jealousy cannot be x-rayed but you can chart in physical terms the bodily stress it causes as the nervous and granular systems of the body keep score.  Like everyone else, you need a little help from the expert in fighting off jealousy.

1)  Where is your jealousy coming from?

Ask yourself why you feel the way you do.  Is there a deeper issue, or is your partner giving you a really good reason to feel jealous?  When you're jealous, you need to stop and analyze the situation.

2)  Admit you're jealous

When you're jealous, the worst thing you can do is to lie to yourself and play games with your emotions.  According to psychologists hiding your jealousy, when it's obviously there, will only make you angrier and more resentful.

3) What circumstances stir up your jealousy?

Are you terribly afraid of being betrayed?  Ask yourself what situations can drive you nuts, and why.  For example, if you realize, that you hate it when your partner chat with a member of the opposite sex, then you need to discover why that situation makes you feel bad.  Do you remember a similar situation in the past that led to a partner's infidelity?  Or is your self-esteem a little lower than you realized.

4) Take control of yourself.  According to a guidance counselor talk to your partner and be honest about your concerns.  He will be willing to listen to you and work with you to prevent the problem from occurring again if your partner truly cares for you.  It is also a good idea to work on your emotional health.  You will need all your confidence and self-respect to manage your jealousy.

5) Practice makes perfect

Concentrate on controlling your jealousy and hopefully getting rid of it.  Being in control of your emotions allow you to be more open-minded and clear-sighted.  The quality of your relationships and your overall well-being depend largely on your mental state.  The essential qualities for your happiness is a healthy mind free from malice that will encourage the development of zestful life.
