It’s natural to be jealous of another person once in a while but it can sometimes lead to intense feelings of anxiousness, fear of rejection, agitation and self-depreciation.
If you’re someone who tends to be ultra-jealous I’ve rounded up some tips for you.
1. Accept and observe your jealous thoughts and feelings.
When you recognize jealous feelings, take a moment and just observe your thoughts and feelings. Recognize that jealous thoughts are not the same thing as a REALITY. Thinking and reality are different.
2. Don’t Act On Your Feelings
The feeling of jealousy or any other feelings is not the problem, the real trouble starts when you start acting on that jealousy. You can feel the feeling, but you shouldn’t act on it.
So, the next time you feel jealous, accept the feelings and change the way you think about the situation and be reasonable & wise.
3. Recognize that uncertainty is part of every relationship.
Recognize that uncertainty is part of life and you must accept it. Sometimes we can’t really do anything about uncertainty.
4. Appreciate Yourself
One of the main reasons why people get jealous is that they have insecurity issues & low self-esteem.
You may have personal insecurities regarding yourself, or perhaps insecurities you feel when comparing yourself to others. So stop comparing yourself to others & appreciate who you are & what you have.
5. Write It Out
Another good way to help move past the jealously is by keeping a journal. You might feel better as soon as you write your thoughts on your paper.
It also gives you an opportunity to get perspective when you go back & read what you have written.
