    Relationship insecurities

    Related Topic
    I’ve been with my current boyfriend for around 18 months and was with my previous partner for 7 years. There wasn’t a long time period in between the end of one relationship and the start of the next, a slight overlap even which I have never previously done before and still feel guilty about it.
    Anyway, I’m really struggling with jealousy in this new relationship. I’ve experienced this in my previous relationship especially at the start. I obsess over my partners ex partners or previous sexual partners to the point where I find myself wanting to search through their phone to find more details. I constantly compare myself to these past women - thinking that I’m not smart enough, not successful enough, not pretty enough and torture myself with the possibility that he might still think about them. It makes me physically sick.
    I stumbled across some old pictures and messages to a previous girl and I haven’t told my partner that I snooped through his phone but I literally feel sick about what I saw.

    How should I overcome my insecurities?
