He broke up with me because of my jealousy
Visitor's Question from a 21-30 year old Female
I have a boyfriend and are relationship is wonderful except for all my jealousy. I can not help it, and I do not know what to do about it. He now does not have any girls as friends because they are scared of me. I know that is not a good thing. I know what I am doing wrong but I do not know how to tell myself not to be like that. I have a bad problem. Please help.
My boyfriend and I are broke up and have been for a week. But I am so sad. We have been together for 2 years and saw eachother everyday. We love being around eachother, he just hates the jealousy. He does not want to get married to some one with all of the jealousy. But I love him with all my heart. He has never done anything to even make me think that he is cheating or even making eye contact with anybody. I wish I could stop. what do you think I should do. I want him back. I'm really about to just give up on everything, it is ruining my life. HELP!!!!!
As you've seen, jealousy is an INCREDIBLY dangerous emotion that completely destroys relationships. I have a set of information on it here -
but if it has really broken up a 2 year relationship I would strongly recommend going to therapy. That way you can say to your ex, "Look I am taking SERIOUS steps to handle this, can you help me?" I think he will be thrilled that you are finally doing something about it and will be more than willing to help, which will bring you two back together again.
