Original Visitor's Question from a 31-40 year old Female
My fiance and I just got back together after 7 years apart. We dated when I was 16, and I wasent ready to settle down. He ended up going to jail for 5 years and we kept in contact during that time. When I turned 18 I moved to Kansas City, MO which is far from my Maine residence. I met a man and instantly fell in love. Unfortunately I was so in love I couldnt escape the physical and mental abuse. I ended up getting pregnant at 18 and moving back to Maine alone at 19. Duto this man's extensive cheating and abuse I am very jealous now and afraid of being cheated on again. Being back together with my ex is so comforting, he is home with me every night, accepted my biracial child as his own (he is white), works, and rarely spends any time with his friends duto my jealousy issue. I do occasionally catch him glimpsing or staring at another attractive woman. (Maybe duto being locked down for so long?) How can I get over my jealousy issue and move on so we can both be happy?

Have faith in yourself
For starters you're not alone, I've been with the same problem due to my boyfriend who is now my husband did the same to me. I hated the person I became because of this man. Atfer I couldn't deal with the anxiety and jealousy anymore I went and find my inner peace by going to church and releasing every drop of tears, I realized no one couldn't hep me not even the most amazing family I have, I needed to help myself. I still stugle with it when I see the friends he was with that enjoyed the entertainment at the moment but I know I. Will and I am going to completely in love with myself so i'd laugh last. My advise is read inspirational books, go to church( good and bad days) god is great and have faith in yourself. Your problem is not a problem if you love you. It will get better, trust me
