I’m really insecure about my boyfriend’s ex even though I’m sure my bf doesn’t love her anymore. They were together for six years and sometimes he acts weird when I try to post stuff on his Facebook wall, like he doesn’t want her to see it. I know it’s stupid to get all jealous and worked up, but I can’t help it!
My Joyless Joy,
There’s an old saying that just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t after you. The same is true when it comes to romance–if you find yourself fixated on your man’s ex, sit down and really ask yourself if it’s because he’s given you good reason to worry. Or have you just talked yourself off the cliffs of insanity all on your own?
If you decide that you’re a green eyed monster for no reason, then realize that being envious is just like any other bad habit: it takes self-control–and a zipped lip–to break it. But if you let your fear get the better of you, you’ll definitely destroy your romance–no help from his ex needed!
