Publisher's Summary

Could jealousy be a positive thing? In this groundbreaking book, Robert L. Leahy - author of the hugely popular self-help guide, The Worry Cure - invites you to gain a greater understanding of your jealous feelings, keep jealousy from hijacking your life, and create healthier relationships.

We’ve all heard tales of the overly jealous spouse or significant other. Maybe we’ve even been that jealous person, though we may not want to admit it. It’s hard to imagine anyone sailing through life without either having feelings of jealousy or being the target of someone’s jealousy. But what if jealousy isn’t just a neurotic weakness? What if it signals that your relationship matters to you? In short - what if jealousy serves a purpose?

In The Jealousy Cure, renowned psychologist Robert L. Leahy takes a more nuanced approach to tackling feelings of jealousy. In this compelling book, you’ll uncover the evolutionary origins of jealousy, and how and why it’s served to help us as a species. You’ll also learn practices based in emotional schema theory, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and mindfulness to help you overcome the shame jealousy can bring, improve communication with your partner, and ultimately make room for jealousy while also making your relationship more meaningful. You will learn that confronting jealousy in your relationship does not have to be a catastrophe, but can redirect you and your partner to build more trust, acceptance, and connection.

We often feel jealous because we fear losing the things or people that matter to us the most. With this insightful guide, you’ll discover how jealousy can both help and hurt your relationship, and learn proven-effective skills to keep jealousy in its place.

Loved it

This book was amazing. Really helped me understand myself and helped me communicate better with my partner. My partner too listen and it helped him understand my jealous ways and hope to approach the situation in a way that doesn’t lead to arguments.

Very good principles

It was definitely a great book. Lots of great principles for recognizing and dealing with jealousy. Also, it explained ways to help work through intense and constant jealousy. It also emphasized that feelings of jealousy will never completely go away, unless of course you stop caring about the person.

I recommend it!

waste of a credit

book is so awful I don't even want to see it in my cloud library. how do I delete it completely. I don't care about the wasted credit. I just want it gone. the guy shows his ignorance in the very first paragraph. complete.waste. I was so excited when I bought it too. now I have to find a real book written by someone who actually has a brain.
