Is It Really That Bad To Be A Green Flag With Jealous Thoughts

Mymuse Team - Jun 05, 2024

Jealousy thoughts, in small doses, can be a healthy part of a relationship. It’s a natural emotional response but you must learn how to manage them. 

We've all been there. You’re scrolling through Instagram, and suddenly you see your partner has liked yet another one of their attractive influencer’s posts. Jealousy thoughts, in small doses, can be a healthy part of a relationship. It’s a natural emotional response and, believe it or not, it can even strengthen bonds if managed correctly.

So, When Are Jealous Thoughts Okay?

  • When Boundaries are Crossed: If your partner’s idea of “friendly” is giving their ex a ride home every week, it’s normal to feel a bit uneasy. Jealous thoughts can signal that a boundary has been overstepped and it’s time for a chat.
  • When You’re Feeling Neglected: If your partner is spending more time on their gaming console than with you or using bedroom essentials alone, a pinch of jealousy might remind them that relationships require attention.
  • When There's a Change in Behavior: Being on lesbian or other dating apps or an increased interest in their appearance might make your spidey senses tingle. It’s okay to feel jealous if your partner’s behavior shifts dramatically without explanation.

How to Manage Your Jealous Thoughts

Acknowledge Your Feelings

First things first, admit that you’re feeling jealous. Denying it will only make the feelings stronger. If your partner has a Jack men’s pocket stroker and it makes you jealous, accept it. 

Name it, and it will lose some of its power.

Communicate with Your Partner

Sit down with your partner and agree on what’s acceptable behavior. Setting clear boundaries helps prevent misunderstandings. Use “I” statements to express how you feel without sounding accusatory. For example, “I feel uncomfortable when you spend a lot of time with [Name], and I’d like to understand what’s going on.”

Work on Self-Esteem

Jealous thoughts often stem from insecurities. Remind yourself of your worth and all the reasons your partner chose you. Join a new class, pick up a hobby, use a lubricant gel during your solo sessions, or spend time with friends who make you feel awesome. Keeping your mind occupied helps prevent overthinking and unnecessary drama.

Seek Professional Help if Needed

Sometimes, jealous thoughts can be rooted in past trauma or deeper issues that need unpacking. Don’t hesitate to seek help from a therapist who can provide tools and strategies to manage jealousy in a healthy way.
