How to avoid jealousy in your relationships.

How to overcome jealousy? A difficult question as it is almost ingrained in human personality and it is often said that where there is no jealousy there is no love. A little bit of healthy jealousy coupled with possessiveness is fine but if it exceeds its limits and the other person feels smothered in the relationship you surely need to examine your behaviour.

Jealousy definitely does not add to your attraction and it also proves to be destructive for a healthy relationship. Jealousy manifests itself in the form of anger, hurt; fights and at times relationships even break up. It is very important that you learn to curb this ugly emotion and develop a healthy relationship where there is friendship and understanding.

By now I’m sure you are wondering how to overcome jealousy? The best thing is that this thought has at least come to your mind. First recognize that you have a problem if you are jealous about everything. Secondly start following these techniques that will stop you from feeling jealous.

Realize this fact that even if you keep a constant check on your spouse it will in no way make him or her more faithful. In fact the more jealous and possessive you are the more likely they are to misbehave. Stop assuming what your partner is doing and do not constantly check on him. Unless proven otherwise, do not unnecessarily suspect your partner. Also bear in mind that if your partner is with you, then chances are that the person wants to be with you and not out of any compulsion. Follow these steps and you will never need to know how to overcome jealousy as you already would have done it.
