Dealing with jealousy

Communication stops jealousy. If there is jealousy in your relationship, talk. Don’t assume the worst: ask questions to stop the mystery. Communicate your feelings so you can work out solutions.

When you are jealous, a line of communication is going on with your partner or friend that is hidden from you. The mystery causes the pain. If you witnessed their communication line so it was not hidden from you, you would not feel jealous.

Hidden communication lines or mysteries make you think of questions. “Will she find someone she likes better than me?” “Is he having an affair?” “Is she going to leave me?” “Does he think I’m unattractive?”

When you are jealous, the mystery makes you assume the worst.

Asking open, honest and direct questions removes the mystery, and the source of the jealousy.
