What questions can we ask ourselves in order to overcome jealousy?
"Where are these feelings coming from?" Is there a reason you're feeling jealous, or is it coming seemingly out of nowhere? "What does this jealousy need from me?" Sometimes all you need to do to battle your jealousy is to acknowledge what you're feeling. Try engaging in some self-care behaviors to help yourself settle down. These are different for everyone, but examples could be journaling, going on a walk or run, taking a bath, meditating, calling a friend to vent, or going to therapy. -- Vanessa Marin
“Is your significant other really doing anything wrong?” Some people exhibit jealous behaviors and project these feelings because they are not happy in the relationship. If they really want out they can create a scenario that will inevitably make this happen... “Am I typically a jealous person?” Contrary to people who are experiencing jealousy for the first time, there are others who are chronically jealous. They have destroyed relationships in the past. These people need to recognize this about themselves and come to term with the fact that what they are feeling is their own issue having nothing to do with their partner’s behavior. -- Dr. Hartman
