How does jealousy break human relationships?

Trust and respect are the bedrocks of any good and successful relationship. A jealous person is unable to trust the person they are with or respect them as an individual or their limits. This action will eventually undermine the sentiments of love and devotion that previously existed.

Jealous people can never be trusted. They will always find a way to justify their behavior when it comes to you and your feelings. This means that they cannot be told anything about your life that doesn't concern them. If you have shown them trust by sharing something about yourself, don't expect them to do the same in return.

The only thing that a jealous person will not try to destroy in a relationship is themselves. They will always try to win your approval through pleasing you or avoiding causing you pain. This type of manipulation will never succeed because no one can make another person happy who is unwilling to be made happy.

Jealous people should never be allowed to own weapons. This means that if you know that someone you are involved with is jealous, even slightly, do not give them access to knives, guns, or other tools that can be used to harm you.

If you are being asked to change your behavior in order to make your partner feel better about themselves then you are dealing with a person who is insecure about themselves and their place in your relationship.

What happens when jealousy corrodes your relationship?

When you have a trusting connection, it acts as a lifeboat, anchor, and sail, keeping you floating, safe, and full of purpose. When envy erodes trust and respect in your relationship, it becomes a burden that impedes personal advancement. Envy is a heavy weight to bear, and it creates tension between you and your partner. You may even think about ending the relationship, but fear of being alone makes you stay.

Jealousy can be beneficial in some situations. For example, if you are afraid that someone will take away your mate from you, or children from their parents, then you are not only protecting yourself but also your family by being suspicious of other people's actions. This type of jealousy is healthy and necessary for families to function well. However, if you are envious of your partner's ability to make themself happy while you cannot, then you should ask yourself why they get to be happy when you don't. This type of jealousy is unhealthy because it causes tension and resentment between you and your spouse.

At its core, jealousy is about self-esteem. If you feel insecure about yourself, then you will always want to know what others have that you do not. This need to know everything about your partner or spouse will consume you, and you will never have time for yourself or them.

How can jealousy ruin a relationship?

Jealousy may appear in any relationship. It's a terrible feeling; it has the capacity to smother a joyful relationship and destroy whatever trust that existed. Jealousy may generate a wide range of feelings, including uneasiness and mistrust, as well as rejection, fear, fury, or worry.

The root cause of jealousy is usually fear of loss. If you are afraid that someone else might take away from you or fail to give you what you want, then you will probably feel jealous. Fear of loss can also cause jealousy when there is uncertainty about where you stand with someone. If you aren't sure if they love you, if they would be willing to make the effort to understand your side of the story, or if they think you're just using them for their money or status, then you might feel insecure and thus become jealous.

There are two types of jealousy: subjective and objective. Subjective jealousy involves feelings of insecurity and distrust.
