Do you remember the episode with Sophie? She felt frustrated about an ex moving on so quickly after the end of their 12-year relationship. That call, and the fact that we’re in the season of engagement which often induces comparison and feelings of jealousy, have inspired me to expand on this discussion.
Today, I talk about getting out of the comparison trap and jealousy traps and how to get overthinking about your ex all the time.
6:55 – How we’ve been trained to compare ourselves to others
9:51 – What happens when you beat yourself up for comparing yourself to others
13:04 – The simple phrase to train your brain when you realize you’ve fallen into the comparison trap
16:33 – One of my favorite tricks to handle jealousy
21:16 – A comforting perspective if you had an unhealthy relationship with an ex who’s in a new relationship
26:52 – The two phases of getting over an ex (most women get stuck in the second one)
34:36 – What might happen if you continue ruminating over your ex
