2. Share their success: Remind yourself that as a couple, you are a unit, meaning their achievements are also your achievements. When they score the big promotion or get rewarded for their hard work on a project, remind yourself that by supporting them, you contributed to their ultimate success, and they may not have been able to accomplish it without you. This can replace feelings of jealousy with pride.
