What Jealousy Is Trying to Tell You

Jealousy: an opportunity to learn

Experiencing jealousy gives you the opportunity to learn.

  • Rather than becoming hindered by our response to the emotion, we can ask ourselves some questions.
  • Do you think you lack some quality that you would like to develop?
  • Are you experiencing jealousy because you desire something more than what the relationship can provide?
  • How do you perceive yourself compared to others?

Jealousy lets us look at ourselves and consider what we want for ourselves, how we want to be treated by others, and what we are going to do about what we've learned.
