Jealousy is one of the most misunderstood and misrepresented negative emotions that we will encounter of the course of our lives, often mistaken for a sign of love and endearment. However, in reality, jealousy can cause serious problems in your relationships, triggered by insecurity and low-self esteem.
Despite how toxic and damaging this emotion can be, it’s one that every one of us feels at one point or another in our lives. This may range from the person who is jealous of their sibling as they compete for the affection of their parents or those who find themselves struggling with jealousy towards a co-worker following a promotion. However, in more extreme cases, it can destroy relationships as spouses fail to accept that their partner may have a friend of the opposite sex.
