It is another matter altogether if you are the victim of someone else’s jealousy. If you take it personally, you can be badly hurt by it, and you may keep asking yourself why it is happening to you, and why you should suffer. The first step is to not feel responsible or guilty. The next step is to empathize with the jealous person and look at him with compassion – because he is suffering in his own private hell. If you can directly talk over and reassure the person of your intentions, your role in the relationships, and the fact that he need not feel threatened, that would be the best. If that does not work, or if you are not inclined to try it out, then you will have to seek help through a common friend or neutral person. If the jealousy does not stop, you may then have to insulate yourself and try to focus on other healthier relationships, minimize contact with the jealous person, and hope for the best.
