Jealousy in the relationship

Jealousy in the relationship

2019-09-1501:03:215

Several major components need to exist in a relationship in order for jealousy to take control. When there's jealousy between you and your partner, there is almost always a decrease in love and connection, and an increase in unhappiness and anxiety. It's time to put jealousy to rest once and for all.
When you have issues with sex in your relationship, and you don't discuss it with your partner, your relationship suffers. Or if you do discuss it and you can't reach a resolution, you will feel it throughout your time together and never be as happy as you could be. Also in this episode, I read an email from someone who disagreed with my advice.
The key to long-lasting happiness and fulfillment is about ten percent luck and ninety percent of what I talk about in today's episode. If you struggle in your relationships, your job, or life in general, you may be sabotaging your own path to success. Start making decisions based on what's most important to you instead of from a fear of the consequences and you'll end up with a vastly different reality.
Relating to other people is the majority of how our life is spent, so what do you do when you can't relate? I cover a lot of topics in this episode, from trying to not upset the balance of a difficult relationship to learning how to not compromise yourself when it comes to creating balance in any relationship. Welcome to the grab bag email episode.
What can you do when you really want to change a person or a bad situation but can't? What if you know someone is awful to be around and unhealthy for you, but you can't get them out of your life? In this episode, I give you five steps you can take to learn what it takes become just a bit happier even when impossible people and things are in the picture.
How big of a leap do you have to take to create real change in your life? Is every step a leap of faith that causes you to carry around fear and stress all the time? Can you take baby steps to heal and grow into the person you want to be, creating the life you want? I explore that in this episode.
Guilt should be a temporary emotion yet so many people hold on to it for far too long. In today's episode, guilt takes center stage, but I spend time talking about how to make the right life choices when it comes to allowing or not allowing the challenges at home interfere with your professional life. I end the show talking about a very effective anti-anxiety technique that I use when I need a quick fix.
It can be so hard to stop replaying fears or trauma from the past or anxiety about the future, but if there was a an alternative to obessively replaying the same negative throught over and over again, would you try it? What if it was ridiculous? What if it was effective? Only one way to find out.
Sometimes you have people in your life who regard you and your feelings as unimportant and below theirs. When you agree with their assessment that you are less important or inferior in some way and don't deserve to be treated with respect and kindness, you start to disintegrate your worth and self-esteem.

Great episode and show! Thank you so much! ❤️ P. S. I'm listening from Germany and wanted to use your link to Amazon, but apparently it only works for the "Amazon.COM" version and not for the one in Germany = ending with " .De" ==> any chance to also get this implemented for other country domains? I would be happy to purchase then via your link 😊 Thanks again and greetings!

Gülay Kilic :) Thank you for your support! Supposedly the Amazon link works for internationally, but they may have removed Germany from being a part of it. Might have to set something up for German-specific Amazon support! I appreciate you., thank you for trying. So glad you listen to the show. :)

I liked this episode, not for dealing with others that are passive aggressive to me but looking for ways to help my own passive aggressive tendencies.

I am loving this episode. You are hitting the nail on the head. I'm in a toxic environment at work where I feel I am in a rut and the job has become stagnant. This is a wake up call for me that I need to make a change for myself and quit contributing to this toxicity. Thank you so much... ❤️

obviously this guy has had a pretty sheltered life! some of the discussions & topic explanations don't come from someone who has experience of how problems, issues and subjects occur, such as embarrassment, humiliation etc

David Thrower there's nothing that at all indicates he has been sheltered...actually the opposite.
