Jealousy is an emotion that appears at any time in our life, and it is one of the main reasons why a relationship is broken , both as a friendship and as a couple. Jealousy can appear out of fear of losing a person or envy , and it is very important that we learn to manage this emotion so that it does not hinder our interpersonal relationships with our loved ones, friends and partner.

Jealous people suffer more for what they imagine than for what actually happens

Imagination is usually much more catastrophic than reality, your mind can play tricks on you by imagining things that are only happening in your head . You should try to control and manage these bad thoughts and be very careful with this.

To do this, try to be aware of reality and everything that surrounds you , stay with the events that are really happening and try to leave aside those thoughts that only exist in your imagination. With this, you will only be able to create insecurity in yourself.

Remember that to understand why jealousy appears you must find out what has been the cause that has caused it , because only in this way will you prevent it from becoming a real problem in your relationship.

Talking to the person you are jealous of is the first thing you should do

As we have already mentioned before, your imagination can play tricks on you. Therefore, talking to your partner about your concerns will help you to have more confidence in yourself and therefore reduce insecurity by eliminating those unreal thoughts that may arise at the time of jealousy.

To do this, remember that trust in that person must be essential . You have to trust her and the way she loves you. If you do not trust someone, it is very difficult for the relationship with that person to go in the right direction, so if you suffer from mistrust you should rethink where your relationship is going, be it friendship or partner.

When you’ve talked to your partner, remember that those thoughts won’t go away instantly. You should make an effort to avoid going over the same topic over and over again . Try to manage your emotions, you must overcome your fears and your own insecurity day after day and, once you succeed, your interpersonal relationships with the people with whom you have the most affection will be considerably strengthened.

Love yourself

Envy is one of the main causes of jealousy . The fact that you see a person much better than you in various aspects makes you think that the person who is with you can fixate on another who for you is much better than yourself.

However, you must think that there is no one like you . Think about the things that you can contribute to that person and what others would not know how to give, you are a unique person and that is what makes your partner stay by your side.

Try to find out what makes you special . If in doubt, ask your partner what he saw in you that made him fall madly in love with you. This will help you increase your self-esteem and your self-confidence, eliminating all kinds of insecurity. Do not forget that to love someone well, you first have to start by loving yourself well.

Remember that loving someone does not imply being with that person 24 hours a day, or sharing all kinds of hobbies and sharing your time every day. You need time for yourself and to be with your friends , in the same way that the other person also needs to have their space.

If you understand this, you will be able to manage your emotions much better , jealousy will decrease considerably and you will be able to have a much healthier and less toxic relationship. Spending time with yourself will help you develop better as a person and increase your self-confidence.
