Hey Diauno,

Well, the best way to 'deal' with jealousy is the same tactic you use to deal with most other negative feelings.

Education & understanding.

If you can TRULY understand the biological roots of jealousy (fear) you can more easily develop strategies to keep it in check.

It won't happen overnight.
It won't happen without effort and some pain.

But it CAN happen and has wide implications for how you manage life's ups & downs in the future. Living in fear all the time takes a toll on our mental and physical health, just compounding the problem.

Research the biological foundations of jealousy, understand it, and work hard to banish it from yourself. It's well worth the effort.
