3. Examine your assumptions about relationships.
Do you ever wonder where your jealousy stems from? One way to deal with jealousy is by understanding how it formed. Your childhood experiences can definitely play a part on what triggers you to feel anxiety and insecurity within your romantic relationships. For instance, if your parents divorced due to an extramarital affair or one of them left, you may believe that the same thing will happen to you. Or, if you experienced being cheated on in your past relationship, that can also affect the way you view your current relationship. It’s hard not to let the past color the way you view the present, but learn to differentiate between the two. It’s good practice to examine the evidence that you have, rather than making assumptions and relying on them as ultimate truths.
