Are you the jealous type?
One thing’s for certain…
When you’re jealous, you feel helpless, very alone and usually out-of-control.
You can wonder where all these jealous thoughts (that you don’t WANT to think) come from and feel like someone or something takes over your mind and body as you spin out of control.
You can even feel that you’re the “jealous type” and can’t do anything about it.
We’re here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be this way.
One woman commented on one of our blogs about her jealousy…
She said, “I’m a jealous type of girlfriend and I just can’t change.”
Okay–so if you’re secretly thinking this about yourself…
There’s no such thing as a “jealous type” and people most certainly can change–if they have the courage and the help in doing so.
Sure, jealousy can pop up more easily if you’ve been cheated on in the past–or if your partner blatantly flirts with other people and you don’t feel important to him or her.
But what we know for sure is that jealousy doesn’t have to cloud your judgement and your emotions. You can learn to calm yourself so that you can get a clear, accurate picture of whether there is a need for you to act or not. And you can learn to act in healthy ways rather than allow jealousy to sabotage your relationship or keep you in an unhealthy relationship for way too long.
