How do I stop feeling jealous?
I've been seeing this guy for about 8 months and we are very happy together, however there is one issue which comes up every now and again which I am struggling to deal with.
He is good terms with his ex and it is making me jealous. I trust him completely as know he loves me but every time he has contact with her I can't help but feel jealous, it's making me feel angry with myself as I know I don't need to feel this way.
Part of the problem is that he won't say a bad word about her (they split because they grew apart), also she is younger, slimmer and more successful in her career than myself. Could these aspects of his ex be highlighting my own personal insecurities? And if so how can I overcome this?
He knows I feel like this and does his best to help me overcome these feelings by reassuring me, but I know that ultimately I need to get over it myself.
I was hoping this was something that would fade away, but if anything it is getting worse.
