Since elementary school, kids pretend they have weddings or dates for sometime until it happens. Finally, that first REAL relationship and that person is the best thing that’s happened to you and you’ll be together forever and everything is beautiful and good with the world but then… Why does she keep talking to him? They hang out every week, isn’t that strange? Where does he go on Friday’s? Whose Becky?

Senior Caroline Smith says “Being in a relationship is hard when one person in the duo is insecure. There have been instances in my past relationship where one of us would accuse each other of something absurd just because we were worried about someone else swooping in and taking our significant other. In most cases, jealousy only results in tension over nothing.” I think the last part of her statement sums up what it actually ends up being. The amount of trouble that can surface because of a few misunderstandings is ridiculous.

Sometimes, it’s not even a romantic relationship that feels the sting of jealousy. Friendships, especially when they start out in our first few years, feel just as fleeting and we hang on to people far more aggressively than we realize. Turns out, all it does is create the opposite result. That person feels pressured by the hostility and we end up distancing ourselves from the very person we wanted to stay close to. Strangely enough, most of us know this already. Then why do we do it? Well, I think it speaks to our more primitive side and it would probably do us and others a favor if we could be a bit more logical in situations like this. After all, communication is key and if you can’t trust the other person, maybe there’s something you need to resolve first.
