Jealous? Take A Step Back

Jealousy is frowned up on in any relationship and can lead to huge rifts between two people who once loved each other very dearly.

Dr Helen Fischer, an expert in relationship dynamics, explains that we need to be careful not to let our own insecurities come between ourselves and the one we love.

Step Back

Think about how you would react if your partner had the same concerns. By stepping back, thinking rationally and understanding the situation better, you will ensure that you do not fly off the handle and ruin your relationship.

Trust plays a big role in a relationship and a lack thereof will lead to suspicion and jealousy, even when it is uncalled for, Fischer says. Communication is important between two people, voicing your concerns and understanding why you feel the way you do.

This will ensure you are able to deal with the jealousy and your partner will be able to help to put your mind at ease
