What causes jealousy?
By M.Farouk Radwan, MSc.
An insight into the mind of the Jealous
You were sitting with her that night, everything was going fine and you were both enjoying your time until he suddenly appeared out of no where.
He was better dressed than you, he looked more handsome and he even started talking to her.
Your whole consciousness was focused on them, how he looks at her and how she smiled at him. You become angry, scared, insecure and lacked confidence; to wrap it up, you felt jealous.
Situations where you may experience feelings of jealousy
You may get jealous in any of the following situations:
What are the causes behind jealousy?
If you think that you got jealous because of the way he talked to her or because of the way she smiled at him then you are wrong. Jealousy, like most other emotions which comes from within.
A big part of the problem lies within you and not with the person you are jealous of. The following are possible root causes for jealousy:
The intensity of jealousy differs according to the situation
If you hate someone then most probably you will feel more jealous of him if he succeeded in achieving something.
If you don’t hate him so much then the degree of the jealousy feelings will be less intense. On the other hand, if someone you really like achieved something then you might not feel jealous of him at all.
Jealousy and invading the private space
When someone becomes jealous he may start to invade the private space of his partner in such a way that results in relationship dissatisfaction for the one whose private space was invaded.
In my book The ultimate guide to maintaining a healthy relationship i explained how actions such as insisting on knowing your partner's passwords can make him/her dissatisfied and can ruin your relationship. Unless you have a strong evidence that proves that your partner is cheating on you don't ever invade his private space even if you were feeling jealous.
Jealousy; a friend or foe
The only thing jealousy is capable of doing is making you feel bad, ruin your relations or simply fill your heart with hatred.
Upon feeling jealous, don’t go pick fights with others and blame external factors but instead fix problems and these feelings of jealousy will disappear.
