jealousy in relationship. A bad or healthy habits? 14
Jealousy in relationship

Jealousy in relationships are very common habits. They are totally normal, As human, we always crave to guide/protect what we value so much.

We get furious when we notice that something we desire, or wish to have all for ourselves is gradually slipping out of our finger. With the crave to achieve everything, we tend to get jealous when others does that before us. And No matter how we try to deny this, it Is real, it happens. Jealousy is part of human nature.

jealousy in Relaionships aint an expection too.Even our creator emphasized that he is a jealous God, who wouldn’t want us to divert our attention to any other being or image aside him.

When we love, we tend to guide our loved ones jealously. We feel betrayed and sad when we begin to suspect that they are becoming too attached or intimate with another member of the opposite sex. some people believes that showing an atom of jealousy is a way to proof your love for someone, with the reason that you can only be jealous of something you truly value,

while few others believes that jealousy is an unhealthy habits. This topic is one of the most deliberated topic that usually raises curiosity in the minds of so many. now the quetion is, is jealousy in relationships truly healthy or bad?

Jealousy in relationship is not entirely bad as It is a part of human nature. just like i previously explained. However, the only exception is when It is being abused or displayed in an annoying or excessive manner.

A healthy relationship is one where both partners have a mutual understanding.

And anything that tends to destroy this Understasnding should be avoided at all cost. Being unnecessarily jealous is one of them. When a relationships lacks understanding, break up could be inevitable. Let’s look at some reason why jealousy in relationships may not be too healthy even though it is considered normal.

Reasons Why jealousy in relationships may be considered to be bad.

It leads to lack ot trust.

jealousy in relationship. A bad or healthy habits? 15

When one is always jealous whenever his/her partner begins to get too close to another member of the opposite sex . there is every tendency that he/she lacks trust for their partner. when suspicion becomes so much, it indicates there is no trust in the relationship.

You have already imposed a mindset in you that whenever they talk to others, it simply means they want to become intimate with them. Even when there are no strings attached. you always imagine them cheating on you. is all in your head. This could disrupt the trust in that relationship.

Insecurity.

Jealousy in relationships can also lead to insecurity. you always freak out when you see them act friendly with others. you get unnecessairy paranoid, even when nothing is really going on. so many folks have lost their relationship as a result of this. They keep living in suspects.

And this could be a great turn off to your partner. it could lead one getting worked up for nothing. too much of everything is bad.

Have it in mind that your partner is human. He/she deserves to have other friends too. That they are dating you/married to you doesn’t imply they shouldn’t relate or socialize eith others. Their life shouldn’t solely depend on their relationship with you.

Why not avoid unnecessary jealousy, and give them breathing space. So you can enjoy the relationship. Learn to trust and give them some benefit of doubts. Excessive jealousy could gradually turn one into a needy fellow. and trust me, no man or woman likes that.

Unnecessary fights and quarell.

Jealousy in relationships

Jealousy in relationship can lead to unnecessary fights and quarell. A woman once caught her fiancee relaxing with another lady at a recreational park. Out of jealousy, she suddenly became unease. She approached her fiancee in a fierce and rude manner.

She couldn’t calm down her nerves, and hear from the horses mouth. She became aggressive, and picked a fight with the lady, while embrassing herself. unfortunately for her, she never knew that the lady in question was a relation to her fiancee.

And that was how the supposed relationship which was about leading to the altar ended. She was too quick to react, this is what excessive jealousy can lead to.

How to curb jealousy.

Learn to trust to an extent.

no doubt, A lot of people have trust issues. And this could make them always live in suspicion, even when nothing seems to be going on. they find it hard to trust, not really because they had bad experiences in the past.

But because they have programmed their mind that whenever their partner is with someone of the opposite sex, They would immediately assume they are being cheated on. some could be as a result of their past betrayal.

whichever is the case, learn to give your partner some benefits of doubts. except you actually caught them cheating on you, please don’t assume they are doing so. this could cost you your relationship.

Learn to give them a breathing space.

Overclouding your partner can also lead to unnecessary jealousy in relationship. when you are all over them, you will always get uneasy with their asssociation with others. Especially the opposite

It becomes worse if he/she is a public figure or social person. This attitude could get weired, to the point of becoming jealous when they spend more time with their family members. to avoid this, learn to give your partner a breathing space.

Focus on your life, get busy. With that, you won’t even take notice of whom they communicate or didn’t communicate it. You won’t give yourself unnecessary stress that a’int worth it.

Avoid rushing into conclusion.

Just like the story i previously shared. That young woman would have prevented the break up from happening. If she had calmed her nerves down, by listening to her fiancee, and then doing thorough investigation later, to ascertain the truth.

But no, she allowed her anger and insecurity get a better part of her. And that cost her the marriage she had been preparing for. the man himself couldn’t tolerate such insane attitude.

Considering the fact, that they a’int yet married. he assumes that if they eventually get married, the attitude will grew worse. As she will go about embarassing him publicly. Not everyone could put up with such attitude. Learn to calm down, when you are furious. External information you may also insecurity

Such attitudes could be traumatizing, especially when you are at the receiving end. it hurts more if you are the type that shows a high level of commitment When in love. inconsistent partners are always self centered, they really don’t care about the feelings of whom they are dating, and seems not to put their interest at heart.

Communication.

Communication is almost seen as the first step in solving any relationship or marital issues. You know why? you can’t take a decision, or know your partner’s intention for behaving in a certain way,or doing certain things without first giving them an audience.

Its aim is just to give them a benefit of doubt, before deciding on what next to do. Engage your partner in a relationship. Tell him/her how you feel about their attitude. Avoid being sentimental about it, or consider how they might feel.

Remember this is about you, you are the one feeling the hurts and pain. Tell them exactly the way you feel. Pour out your feelings, like you would have done if you were seeking an advise from a counselor. From there, you can decide on the further steps to take.

Be Realistic. Control your emotions.

Dealing with inconsistent partners.

Don’t let your emotions overcloud your sense of reasoning. Your heart knows is not right for you to remain with an inconsistent partner,yet it wouldn’t want to let go.

You will be doing your self a great favour, by allowing everything happen naturally. stop all the things you’ve been doing to make it work. If paradventure, things remains the same.

Please as hard as it may sound, allow the relationship to go down naturally.

A man once complained about his wife and her weired attitude. According to him, he would nag over little issues. And at the end of the day, they would end up quarreling and abusing each other.

Another complained that his husband was too rigid, according to her, it was all about his work and nothing else. He provides her need and that’s just that.

He doesn’t have time to discuss and play romantically with her. Except when he wants to have sex.

Emotional differences In men and women. 33

Nothing boost a man’s ego than having his goal and dreams actualized.

An average man always craves to be recognized, and be financially stable to take care of his responsibilities. That aim always tops his priority.

At this moment, his relationship may be equally important to him, but not as important as establishing himself to that personality he wants to be. On the contrary, women love attention. Despite a woman’s dream and goals in life. when she is in love, she always craves for attention from her partner.

A woman loves to be pampered, she always wants you to listen and respond to her dry jokes. She wants you to pay attention to her not so meaningful conversation. As that strengthens your bonds with her. She wants that assurance from you that she occupies a strong place in your heart. this emotional difference has created a lot of misunderstanding in most relationship.

A man would do anything to ensure he succeeds in life, because he can’t stand being a failure. And this may cause him to become distant emotionally.

while a woman would always love to get undivided attention from his man, in spite of his busy schedules. And when she a’int getting that, she will begin to freak out and nag. And sometimes, might begin to have the impression that his partner had lost interest.

However, if both can handle this maturely and understand why both genders differs. then there wouldn’t be any cause for alarm.

Men are derived by Realities, women are derived by fantasies.

Emotional differences In men and women. 34

A man may be in love, but at the same time realistic and doesn’t put so much meaning to certain things. most men doesn’t attach so much meanings to 8 display of affections. As normally seen in movies.

A man may love you, but wouldn’t see the need of saying that constantly. A man may have his woman in his heart, but may not see the need of calling or messaging her at every intervals to proof that. Men are always at alert to know when a relationship is about to end.

majority don’t believe in fighting for a non- existing love. they understand the fact that no human is perfect. And so doesn’t always expect much.

On the other hand, women are derived by fantasies. a woman in love may have an imaginary relationship, playing on in her head.

And expect her’s to be exactly that way. She may begin to fantasize on having her man, treat her in similar ways as she do watch in telemundos. such as serving her breakfast on the bed every morning. and waking her up every morning with romantic text messages.

she believes that every display of affection in movies are real. and so when she doesn’t get that from her spouse, she will feel unloved, regardless of other thing he does to make her happy.

However, Understanding this emotional differences will help restore peace between both genders. As men would begin to accept the fact that women are derived by fantasies. and so would learn to accept their woman the way they are. rather than begin to fight or abuse her whenever she nags. on the other hand,

Women would also understand that men are realistic and doesn’t get fascinated over certain things. So rather than fight her man, or nag him unnecessarily for not proofing his love in a certain way. she will learn to accept him the way he is, as far as he has his own way of showing her love.

Men are derived by what they see, while women are derived by what they hear.

This is a common saying, widely and generally accepted in the society. Which has proven to be true. Men doesn’t always fall in love at first sight. they are mostly attracted by a woman’s appealing and sexy body.

This explains why a man can have sex, with so many women without having any feelings or strings for them. A man who is sexually aroused can have sex with just anyone just to get his hormone suppressed. they don’t necessarily have to be in love before getting down.

A man may have sex without involving his emotions. A man can get attracted to a lady by her physical appearance and structure, without having any feelings for her. while on the contrary, women involves emotion a lot during intimacy. She is always eager to hear the magical words “i love you”.

Wheather or not you actually meant it. she always wants to hear you whisper those romantic words to her ear, regardless of wheather you actually meant it. She wants you to appreciate her every now and then. Irrespective of how she dresses or looks.

This emotional differences have ruined so many singles especially gullible ladies.

Their naivety and desperation to be loved, often lures them to men who just want to have a carnal knowledge of them. Without involving their emotions. This can only be tackled, only if singles can understand how male emotions work. so they wouldn’t fall prey, whenever any man Close to them begins to sound romantic .

Men bottles up their emotion, while women are more transparent.

Men are known to be the strongest gender, due to the pressures and expectations placed on them by the society.

They don’t like being pitied or felt for. They don’t want to be seen as emotionally weak.

That’s why they prefer keeping to themselves and handling things by themselves . Is rare to find men expressing their hurts and emotions openly via sobbing. they always pretend everything is alright. they would rather get their brains at work and start thinking of solutions than to cry.

women on the other hand are emotionally weak. a woman passing through hurts or difficult times would always want to confide in that special person in her life.

he would love to be consoled and assured that things would get better. he would love his partner to offer her a shoulder to lean on.

this emotional differences has brought a lot of problem in various homes. a man who is passing through difficulties may focus his attention on getting his problem solved, which might temporarily distract his attention from his relationship. In such that he may begin to act cold and distance unintentionally to his relationship.

Most women may mistaken their emotional coldness as lost of interest Or signs of infidelity. However, if both can understand the variations in the ways each respond to emotions, i think the problem in most relationship would be gotten rid of.

It is a natural occureance, and the only remedy to it, is observing the root cause. and this could be achieved by Examining the relationship by both partnersto know exactly what went wrong. You remebered those days when you couldn’t go a day without trying to hear their voice.

You remebered those days when you couldn’t go a day without uttering the four Lettered powerful and magical words. “i love you”. Then all of a sudden, everything seems like fake. Telling your partner you love them no longer moves as you don’t want to sound fake or deceive them. yet you are scared of letting them know your feelings towards them had changed. Instead you remained in the relationship out of pity.

The worse scenario is being at the receiving end. You recalled when they couldn’t go a day without desiring to hear from you or see you. Then all of a sudden, everything seems like a night mare. Their love and affection began to decline. Here is a short story from a woman who once had a share of this experience.

We were once cool with each other, fallen in love with him was the greatest thing that ever happened to me, because he pratically worshipped the ground i walked in.

Then all of a sudden, he became cold and distance. i began to feel his absence more often. i called his attention towards it, but he kept assuring me that all was good. i took his words for it and gave him some benefits of doubts.

Distraction from another opposite sex

This contributes to the top reason why people fall out of love. A times, when a partner suddenly became cold and emotionally distant,

it could mean they are begining to get attention from another member of the opposite sex. at this point, nothing else could ever bring their attention back. because they are already considering dating someone else, who to them seems more appealing than their partner.

Incompatibility.

people may fall out of love as a result of not being emotionally compatible with their partners. not having common interest or goals with someone they are dating is a great turn off to most people.
