The Signs of Jealousy
You might feel rational one minute and then completely irrational the next. You might start to believe your irrational thoughts even though you know deep down they cannot be true. Perhaps yout feel insecure and become watchful of your partner’s every move. Or you might feel you’re unable to trust them and start to feel rejected and unloved. This might lead to you questioning what they are doing at all times.
Jealousy can cause you to experience a range of feelings, from insecurity and suspicion to rejection, fear, anger or anxiety. If you think jealousy might be an issue in your relationship why not ask yourself the following questions:
Are You Jealous?
Do you question your partner about where they have been and who they have been talking to? Perhaps you feel the need to check their phone, Face Book or e-mail? Maybe you accuse your spouse of flirting?
Jealousy is an unhealthy, miserable, destructive emotion and can often can cause you to say things that you later regret. Jealousy and suspicion robs you of your peace of mind and wreaks havoc in your relationship. It comes through in the way you talk and the way you act, often creating unnecessary worry, fear and confusion.
There are of course times when you might feel you have valid reason to check up on your partner, perhaps they have lied to you in the past. Therefore, it’s never a good idea to ignore your ‘gut feeling’ or any warning signs that something is wrong. However, it’s always best to try and deal only with ‘factual’ evidence. For many people, jealous impulses are fear-driven and not linked to any fact.
