13 Things You Can Do Today to Stop Being Jealous

Jealousy is an emotion that everyone experiences to some degree. It can serve as a signal that something important to us is at stake. 

However, if it’s becoming excessive or harmful to your well-being and relationship, then it’s time to do something about it.

Here are practical and effective strategies you can implement today to stop being jealous in marriage.

1. Uncover the Jealousy Culprits

Perhaps you are envious when your partner spends time with friends because you wish he wanted to spend more time with you.

It could be that past betrayals or insecurities from your previous relationships have left lingering doubts in your mind. 

By identifying the root causes of your jealousy, such as fear of abandonment or low self-esteem, you can begin to address them head-on. 

Reflect on past experiences or traumas that may have contributed to these feelings.Then, replace negative thoughts with positive affirmations. It’s hard to do this alone, so don’t hesitate to seek professional help.

2. Heal the Wounds

It starts with healing the wounds that have left their mark on your heart. Perhaps you’ve been hurt in your past relationship, experiencing betrayal or abandonment that has fueled your insecurities. 

It’s time to confront those painful memories and work toward forgiveness. 

This is a necessary step towards building trust and embracing a more confident version of yourself. One of the most effective methods out there is listening to a Hypno-Journey. This guided meditation will take you back to your unwanted emotions and memories that are rooted in feeling unloved or abandoned.  The result of doing a hypno-journey is that you will sense a lightness afterwards, as you have let go of past hurt.

3. Rock Your Confidence

Unleash your inner superstar! Feelings of inadequacy or low self-esteem often lead to jealousy in a relationship. 

So remember, you are incredible in your unique way. Embrace your strengths and passions, and let them shine brightly. 

Take time for self-care and do activities that boost your self-esteem. 

Celebrate your achievements, big or small, and remind yourself of your worthiness of love and respect. 

When you believe in yourself and radiate confidence, jealousy loses its power. So, stand tall, embrace your individuality, and let your inner superstar shine through. Your marriage will thrive when you are grounded in self-assurance and love for yourself.

4. Crush the Green-Eyed Monster

Picture this: You’re attending a social gathering. You see your husband engaging in a friendly conversation with a coworker, and suddenly, an unsettling feeling of jealousy surges within you. You start questioning his loyalty and imagining worst-case scenarios.

You begin to question his intentions and feel a pang of jealousy, fearing that he may find her more interesting or attractive than you. 

These emotions create tension and distance between you, hindering the joy and connection that social gatherings should bring. 

By realizing the negative impact of jealousy in marriage, you can begin to think rationally instead. 

5. Speak Your Truth

Communicate openly with your partner about those aggravating jealous feelings. 

For example, your husband receives a text message late at night, and instantly, jealousy starts to consume you. 

Instead of letting it fester inside, have an open and honest conversation with him. Express your concerns, fears, and insecurities without accusations or blame. 

By sharing your feelings, you create an opportunity for understanding, reassurance, and problem-solving. 

Effective communication is the key to building trust in your marriage. So, take a deep breath, gather your courage, and have that important conversation. 

Your partner’s understanding and support can help alleviate your jealousy and strengthen the bond you share.

But what if your partner is not understanding? It is still important to speak up, regardless of his response. 

Find your authentic voice, which is often loving and supportive. It is not hurtful or mean. 

Be proud for speaking your truth. Take one step at a time. 

Yes, it takes courage to find your voice. But it will feel so good! It’s scary but freeing.

6. Build a Fortress of Trust

Let him feel that you’re open to his transparency. Let your husband know that he can be honest with you. 

Make a conscious effort to create an environment where open communication is encouraged and valued. 

This encourages him to share his thoughts and feelings.

You can do this by sharing your thoughts, feelings, and experiences with your spouse. When you open up about your insecurities, fears, and concerns, he will feel safe to do the same. 

Vulnerability breeds connection and empathy within marriage. This will eventually stop you from being jealous in marriage.

7. Flip the Script

It’s time to flip the script and challenge those negative thoughts that fuel your jealousy, rewriting the story of your mind. 

Let’s paint a picture: You see your husband in a conversation with a female colleague, and immediately, the green-eyed monster of jealousy starts to rear its head. 

But hold on! Instead of letting those negative thoughts consume you, pause and question their validity. 

Challenge the assumptions and interpretations that make you jealous in marriage. Practice self-awareness by paying attention to your thoughts and emotions when jealousy arises. 

Notice the physical sensations in your body and the thoughts that accompany them. By becoming aware of these patterns, breaking the habits using a Soulify Hypno-Journey,  you will be able to reinforce new thought patterns, and regain more control over your reactions.

Remind yourself of the love, commitment, and trust you share with your husband. 

By reframing your thoughts and consciously choosing to focus on the positive aspects of your relationship, you regain control over your emotions. 

So, grab that pen and rewrite the story of your mind, empowering yourself to create a narrative of love, trust, and confidence in your marriage.

8. Embrace Zen Mode

You can create kick-ass coping strategies to keep jealousy at bay, like meditation and mindfulness practices.

These coping mechanisms will help you empower yourself to manage and overcome jealousy’s grip. 

Try these examples and stick to the one that works for you:

  • Deep meditation, ex: Hypno-Journey
  • Daily gratitude
  • Journaling
  • Mindful eating
  • Walking or exercise
  • Yoga

9. Love on Steroids

Show your spouse your love and affection in meaningful ways, such as surprise date nights, heartfelt compliments, or acts of kindness.

Don’t forget to consider speaking his love language! Prioritize quality time together, engaging in activities that strengthen your connection and ignite passion. 

Communicate openly about your desires and fantasies. This helps you build a space of trust and exploration in your intimate life. 

Do all these so that jealousy in marriage finds no room to thrive.
