The Dangers of Jealousy in a Relationship


Even the strongest relationship could suffer if it becomes a breeding ground for jealousy and insecurity. It is easy for doubts to creep in when one or both partners start to become unsure. When this happens, the couple need to take some time to analyze themselves, before they can truly move forward. Let us take a look at a few causes of jealousy in a relationship;

Low self-esteem:

When one of the partners have low self esteem, they would begin to feel inferior in the relationship, because they start to believe they are not worth loving. They believe their partner deserves better and they are patiently waiting for their partner to realize this and leave them. This would then result in them accusing their partners of being disloyal since they are obsessed with the thought that it would happen sooner or later.

Loss of Trust:

A person who has been cheated on by his/her partner would automatically expect this to happen again. This expectation would lead them to become very distrusting and they begin to question every little thing their partner does. They lose faith in the partnership and it becomes hard to regain the trust.

Past Experiences:

Someone who has bitter experiences in the past would find it difficult to trust the person they are with, no matter how much or how often this person tries to prove he/she is loyal.

They keep waiting for their current partner to err the same way their previous ones did. The one thing we need to know is that jealousy is something that cannot simply be overlooked.

It leads to pain, bitterness and heartbreak. It is not only the jealous partner who is being hurt, the one who is being accused would also feel his/her integrity and loyalty is being called into question. They would slowly begin to get resentful and some might even go ahead and do what their partners are accusing them of. Since two wrongs do not make a right, we can see how something like this could cause an instant demise of the relationship.
