Everyone has experienced a little bit of jealousy in dating life; after all, it’s a sign that you care about this person. Both men and women fear sexual and emotional infidelity, especially those who already experienced cheating partners and were left with trust issues. But can jealousy become too much? Jealousy can get out of control sometimes, causing more harm than good. A little bit of jealousy can be seen as fun and cute, but extreme jealousy can become dangerous. So how to deal with jealousy and take control of your emotions? Stay tuned to find out.
1. Don’t act on your emotions
When it comes to jealousy, you should never act in the heat of the moment. One thing is to catch some sketchy texts from your partner to another girl. Another thing is just being suspicious about it and having no proof. First, think to yourself: Am I exaggerating? Am I overreacting? Am I just having a bad day? Can this hurt our relationship? If the answer is yes, you shouldn’t accuse your partner of anything. Never allow your emotions to control you, or you won’t be able to get your message across in a respectful, healthy way.
2. Take a deep breath and don’t be afraid to be vulnerable
You may have this coldness to you that some people perceive as selfishness or detachment, but you’re just trying to protect yourself in reality. However, you need to understand that love makes you weak and not in a bad way. It just means you need to be vulnerable or at least be open to the idea of it. No one wants to be in a relationship with a closed off person. You need to open up to the person you’re dating by expressing your feelings, fears, and desires.
3. Express your feelings calmly
Never let your emotions control your words whenever you feel jealous of something, take some time to take a deep breath, and opt by talking to your partner calmly about what’s bothering you, in a respectful adult way. Don’t jump to conclusions and don’t make a revenge plan. Instead, opt by talking to them in a way that’s light and won’t put pressure on them. Start by saying that you love them and trust them; this will make you both feel at ease before discussing serious problems.
