Why We Get Jealous

Hey guys! Welcome back. I think we all get jealous at some point. Maybe you get jealous of a sibling, a friend, or a significant other. Regardless, at some point you have probably been jealous. It’s not always a bad thing. It does have a negative connotation, but I believe it’s actually a positive. Being jealous is healthy.

First off, being jealous means you are interested. It means that you care enough to be jealous and have the desire to have such strong feeling for the other person. That’s not at all a bad thing. Jealousy happens in all relationships everywhere. So if it happens in every relationship, why is it a bad thing?

I think the underlying reason we typically get jealous is we fear being replaced. If our friend is hanging out with someone else or our significant other is talking to someone else we fear that maybe they will like that other person more and forget about us. It happens. We all get insecure, especially in relationships we feel a great deal about. There is nothing wrong with it as long as you don’t do something extreme like light someone’s house on fire.

Jealousy isn’t a bad thing. Open up to those in your life and let them know how you feel. Most likely, if they care the same about you, they will understand. Be honest and trust the other person. What is meant to happen will happen. You can’t control everything. But opening up about your jealous feelings could help.
