The Disadvantages of Jealousy in Relationships

Getting the perfect partner in a perfect relationship is not impossible to happen. But by means of the word, “perfect”, doesn’t mean it’s the complete pieces of the puzzle like how everybody wants it to be. Instead, it could be full of flaws. Yet, for you it is perfect. It is more on how you want it to be. It is more on having a relationship which suits your personality and lifestyle. In short, it is more of having a partner that you can call your soul mate.

Nevertheless, problems are always part of a relationship. So before achieving that perfect state that you wanted, experiencing sacrifices, trials and hardships is the best teacher for you to say you have learned in becoming better. Some of these trials come and go. Some stay for a long time and test your relationship while some disappears like a bubble.

One of the issues your relationship may face is this big word, jealousy. No matter how understanding and careful you are in your relationship, jealousy is a normal feeling you are going to face. There’s nothing to bother at all. Nonetheless, it should not be taken for granted either. It is healthy for you to feel that jealousy but there could be disadvantages when disregarded over time.

Here are some details about it:

There is paranoia. If you are the jealous partner and you decided not to resolve it within the soonest possible time, this could lead you to some serious matters. This could not only affect you emotionally but also physically and mentally. If you are hiding that jealous feeling all by yourself, you would tend to think about it over and over again until such point you can’t get over it. This could greatly affect your body. Since a paranoid person lacks sleep and does not like to eat, weakness and drowsiness is exhibited during the day. A paranoid person is less likely to do activities that would excite him/her. He/She only thinks of what the partner maybe doing or thinking. This could lead to severe anxiety and depression.

A routine is messed up. On the other hand, if you have a jealous partner, it is very difficult for you to sustain a free relationship. Handling a jealous partner is like handling high-end glass chandeliers with care. A jealous partner is very delicate and sensitive with feelings. Make it to a point that you do not upset your partner by giving doubts and ideas to make him/her feel jealous. It is expected that because of this behavior, your daily routine before would not be a routine anymore. Changing schedules to meet the needs of your jealous partner would be necessary as a start to fix this kind of problem in your relationship.

You’ve got to prove yourself every single day. Having a jealous partner means having to prove to him/her that you are faithful and loyal. This could mean proving it forever. This point may suck for you but it is reality. This is more difficult if you really committed a fault within your relationship. Trust is an important component and once that trust is gone because of what you did wrong, it is very difficult to get it all back. So if this means proving yourself that you are sorry every day just to get your relationship better again, just go for it. If you haven’t done anything wrong in the past but still is mandated to prove your loyalty, bringing this up to your partner through a serious talk may be the best solution as for the moment.
