Jealousy in a small dose is always good in a relationship, knowing that there is someone who is afraid to lose you, strengthens your bond. But it could also lead to some other issues like insecurity.
If there is someone who gets more love and affection from your partner than you are getting, it will make you feel insecure about your relationship and it will ultimately destroy the relationship. Many relationships end because of jealous conflicts. Jealousy could be called as the official killer of relationship. We have listed below few ways to eliminate jealousy from your relationship.
Do you trust your partner? The success of a relationship is trust, where you can tell each other anything, no secrets and lies. Love is all about trust. If you can’t trust your partner, your relationship is likely to collapse anytime soon. When you trust them there is no place for jealousy. Jealousy comes in when your partner seems to care for someone more than they care for you. You don’t have to trust the people they hang with, but you can trust your partner. Speak to them about the problems you are facing with the relationship, it’s always better than feeling jealous.
RESPECT THEIR FREEDOM:
This is one important thing that many fail to succeed with. Your partner has a world outside you, they have their own ideas and concepts. Love consists of a commitment which limits one’s freedom. But you have to give your partner their space and respect their freedom. When you ignore to do this, your relationship is on a stalk of getting invaded by jealousy.
Your partner may be close with someone, someone who has something that you lack. It may be beauty, money or anything. But don’t let that fool you. Your partner has chosen to love you, because you are special. Your partner is in love with you, because they are proud to have you and they love everything about you. Everyone is different from one another, stop focusing on the attention that your partner is giving to someone. And start focusing on the reason why your partner has chosen to spend his/her life with you. If you could do this then there is no place for jealousy in your relationship. All you have to do is stop comparing yourself with any other person and stop looking at what that person has that you lack.
In order to overcome jealousy, you have to stop counting other’s blessings instead of your own. You can’t make your love life a success if you are too busy in comparing yourself to other’s who your partner seems to care about. You are unique in your own way and that is why they have decided to spend the rest of their life with you, so stop wishing you had someone else’s success. Because comparison is the thief of joy and comparison makes way to Jealousy which kills a relationship.
