Do you feel insanely jealous whenever your spouse or boyfriend communicates with a woman? Maybe he stares at your girl friend? Do you feel jealous when he talks to his ex-girlfriend or spouse? Is it tearing you both apart? If yes, it’s not healthy and we hope that these tips on how to deal with jealousy shed some light.
“Welcome to the wonderful world of jealousy, he thought. For the price of admission, you get a splitting headache, a nearly irresistable urge to commit murder, and an inferiority complex. Yippee.”

“Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition. The immature mind often mistakes one for the other, or assumes that the greater the love, the greater the jealousy – in fact, they are almost incompatible; one emotion hardly leaves room for the other.”
― Robert A. Heinlein
#1: Be Fair
Jealousy often stems from previous sour relationships. Maybe your ex-partner cheated on you and now you feel that new partner is going to do the same. But, ask yourself whether you’re being fair. Granted, you have trust issues and need some time to cope, but jealousy will only threaten your future.
