Jealousy causes you to react to a fantasy scenario that’s all in your mind. In reality, the bad things that you’re imagining may never happen at all. And if they do, you’re strong enough to get through them. You have other people that you can count on in your life, and you’ll move on to become a better person. Your boyfriend or girlfriend may call an ex to express condolences something awful happens, like the person’s mother dies. Don’t go crazy about it. First of all, the person that you love isn’t necessarily hung up on an ex. Second of all, your boyfriend or girlfriend is being nice and considerate, and that’s 1 of the reasons that you love him or her so much.
