Is Your Jealous Partner Driving You Mad? You Don’t Have To Put Up With It
You are in love and sometimes your relationship feels like the greatest thing in the world, but at other times it can be a bit of a chore. Your partner’s jealousy is driving you mad – you catch them checking your phone, watch over your shoulder as you send emails and ask where you are hundreds of times a day. Not only is it seriously irritating, but it is also invasive – you are entitled to your own life without being accused of something.
It is important to remember that their jealousy is not your fault – unless you flirt with every man, woman and animal that crosses your path – it is often the result of their own insecurities. They are anxious that you don’t love them as much as they love you and that you will eventually leave them for someone new.
As long as your partner’s behaviour hasn’t become controlling, as this is unacceptable, you may want to do all you can to ease their fears and rid them of their jealousy for good. But, it can be difficult, when you are with a jealous partner sometimes it seems easier to be secretive, deceptive and avoid calls, because you don’t want them to confront you with a barrage of questions.
However, the problem with using secrecy and withdrawal to cope with your jealous other half, is that it can create more anxiety in your partner, which will likely lead to a rise in jealous behaviour. It is a vicious circle that will continue to become more and more disruptive to your relationship – if this cycle is not broken then it may be too much for your relationship to survive. No matter how much you love each other, there is a limit to how much strife any relationship can withstand.
The best way to deal with a jealous partner, is to work through their anxieties and insecurities together – let your partner know that they can talk to you about their worries and fears and try to understand where they are coming from. Don’t dismiss their feelings as crazy or silly, this will just make them feel even more misunderstood.
Being sympathetic towards their feelings will eventually help your partner to become more trusting, but it is going to take a lot of effort on both side and it will be tough. So make sure you let your jealous partner know that you love them and you are willing to be there to support them whatever it takes.
It may be a long process and counseling may be required, but it will be worth the effort in the long run.
