I am a REALLY jealous person. What’s mine is mine and I want to get rid of that mentality. I know if I keep this up it will ruin my relationship, but I don’t know how to calm down.

Although jealousy is a very human trait, I am glad you have it on your agenda to change. The more your are able to believe in yourself and your own well-being the less jealous you will be. This is a time to cultivate self-confidence. With your relationship it is best to talk about the jealousy with your partner as an issue you are having. The discussion, without blame, can help provide a more intimate communication.

If you don’t see some improvement within the next 30 days I would make an appointment with a therapist to unravel the source of the jealousy. The find help tab at the top of the page can help you locate someone in your area.

Wishing you patience and peace,
