How Do You Know If Your Jealousy Has Gone Too Far?
Jealousy will make you crazy. When you are in its grip the feeling is almost unbearable.

Take positive actions that will increase your feelings of self-love and self-worth. The only way to feel good about you is by doing things that make you feel proud; that bring you self-respect. That is the exact opposite of what you have been doing. It feels terrible to snoop and sneak into someone else’s life. Negative actions bring with them negative emotions, so you end up feeling guilt, remorse and shame.

Your feelings about your man will always be a reflection of how you feel about you. If you don’t trust yourself you can’t trust the man in your life. If you cannot love yourself, you will not believe that you are loved.

Pay attention to what you need to do make your life more fulfilling and satisfying and start doing it. You will find your mind now occupied with good thoughts about you and your value as a woman. You will see things more clearly and invite into your life a new sense of wellbeing and confidence. As you begin to trust yourself you will be creating your own sense of emotional security that nothing can shake. Your jealousy will dissipate and you will be able to love from a much deeper and more trusting place.

Maya Angelou said it well:

Jealousy in romance is like salt in food. A little can enhance the savor, but too much can spoil the pleasure and, under certain circumstances, can be life-threatening.
