A lot of people confuse jealousy with love, protection, loyalty and a lot of other positive elements of a relationship. And it can feel like that, at times. If someone doesn’t want you spending time with other people, talking to the opposite sex, or even talking about the opposite sex, it can feel like, “Well they just love me so much they want me all to themselves.” But the truth is that to love someone means to want what’s best for them as an individual, separate from yourself. In other words, if someone really loves you, they would never ask you to stop speaking to one of your best male friends—a friend who has always been there for you and always made you happy. Control has no place in love and jealousy is deeply rooted in wanting to control someone. Here is why and when you should never forgive extreme jealousy.


When he’s asking you to break a friendship

No partner should ever ask you to break a friendship with someone because of jealousy. He may think your male friend has a crush on you, or he may even just be uncomfortable with you having male friends entirely. But a man who really loves you wouldn’t ask you to burn a bridge of friendship that you’ve built for years, just to make him a little more comfortable.
