I have BPD so jealousy is part of the starter pack. It's crippling. When I'd have a boyfriend, I wouldn't want him to have any friends or a life lol. That sounds messed up and weird but that's how my PD works. I've learned for myself, however, that taking a step back helps. I analyze myself. "So basically... I don't want him to have friends and have relationships outside of me because I just don't trust him, even though there's no evidence to prove he's untrustworthy?" People with BPD disassociate and I only experience it mildly. But it helps me learn how to look at things outside of myself. Idk it's a weird thing that happens...

Of course, in some cases people do break trust and lie. But at that point it's more about questioning the relationship instead of second guessing yourself.

Jealousy is inevitable in life, and it's tiresome to fight it off. But the fight is well worth it, I promise you.
