Jealousy can be Important to Strengthen Friendships and Relationships:- A new study revealed that feeling jealousy can be a tool to strengthen your friendship and relationship. Motivated behaviors come from jealousy and are related to the value of friendship. The study was published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. Along with fun, there is a lot of competition and strain in friendships and relationships. Friends are a support during a conflict and and are against loneliness. The study says that the jealousy can act as a tool for maintaining the friendships.
In any relationship, if a best friend walks out, people feel saf more than jealous. Jealousy is a dominant feeling at times when you have a new friend or a romantic partner coming in your life. The third-party threats to friendship are not just related to a best friend spending time by staying away from you or your companion. The study found that people are less jealous about their best friend spending time with a new romantic partner. When you try to monopolize a best friend, it would be a matter of jealousy. This is a signal that friendship is threatened.
