Have you ever been in a situation where your significant other seems too clingy or overly suspicious of your actions? If so, then that could be a sign of jealousy. Jealousy can come from insecurity or possessiveness. It can also come from fear of loss or abandonment. So let’s talk about some easy tips on how to deal with jealousy in your relationships:
3 signs of a jealous relationship
1) Your partner constantly wants to know who you’re with and what you do when they aren’t around. They may even try to dictate where you go, who you see, and what activities you do without them – this is especially concerning if your partner has never acted like this before.
2) They become very controlling over trivial things, such as not wanting their phone calls/texts ignored or becoming upset if there isn’t an immediate response from their partner. This type of behavior is often done out of fear that something bad will happen between the two people involved while apart from each other.
3) Your partner gets angry easily at minor issues – maybe they think someone else has taken away their attention – which makes them feel threatened by outside relationships. This kind of anger should not be tolerated as it can lead to more serious problems. Such as verbal abuse or physical violence against those perceived as “competitors” for affection (i.e., friends).
4 tips to handle a jealous relationship
Now that we have discussed some signs of jealousy within relationships let’s get into some easy tips on how to deal with jealousy in your relationships. How to handle it if you find yourself in this situation:
1) Set boundaries – Letting your partner know what is acceptable and unacceptable when it comes to their behavior is paramount here. You need to express yourself without feeling judged or attacked by them whenever something doesn’t go their way.
2) Communication – Communicating openly and honestly with each other will help both parties better understand one another’s feelings. While also teaching them the importance of respect between partners.
3) Trust – Building trust within the relationship should always come before anything else; showing that you aren’t going anywhere no matter what happens will help ease their worries about potential infidelity or abandonment from either side.
4) Self Care- Taking care of yourself emotionally, mentally, physically, etc., will give both parties more energy and space needed for growth within the marriage/relationship itself. Having healthier habits such as exercising regularly or meditating can definitely lead to a less stressful life overall!
