Is jealousy normal?
We can all feel jealous at times. Jealousy speaks to our insecurity: we trust the other person but sometimes we’re scared of losing him/her. That’s normal!
If you feel jealous, identify when it happens and talk to your partner about what’s bugging you. Discuss your idea of a relationship, honesty, fidelity, and your limits. To feel good together, you need to trust each other.
Sometimes jealousy can take over our whole life and thoughts – it becomes unhealthy. Then we need to learn to manage it. To do so, you can work to develop your self-confidence or look for solutions with your partner. However, if you catch yourself spying on the other person, trying to control him/her, exploding with anger, feeling bad, or stressing all the time, it’s best to ask for help!
