Them: Yes ___ No ___

On the opposite end of the scale is the “jealous” relationship. I had one of those too! It only takes one. I sure learned as much from that as I did the supportive relationship. But not so good were the lessons. Jealousy is evidence of insecurity and a lack of belief in the relationship. You can’t change a jealous person’s reactions; they have to want to change for themselves. I constantly thought about what I could have, should have and would have done differently in that relationship. But, what it boiled down to was that he had very poor examples of what a partnership should be about.

If you find yourself responding in a jealous reaction, stop and think about how little it has served you so far. It only destroys what might otherwise be a great potential relationship.
