Jealously is a difficult emotion. When you feel it, it can be hard to shake it off — as much as you might what to. And dealing with a person who is jealous is no walk in the park, either. Jealousy can come in many forms and into many situations. One area it frequently rears its ugly head is in relationships.
Relationships are special, complex, intense things. When there are people sharing their hearts with each other, there are obviously a lot of feelings involved. When other people are added to the equation (hello, exes, friends, random people) jealousy can happen.
It’s very common for someone to experience jealously in a relationship at some point. After all, you have feelings for your significant other and want to protect him/her and your relationship. The problems start to arise when those jealous feelings consume us.
I don’t want to see that happen with you which is why you need to make a conscious effort to keep feelings of jealous in check.
