It’s easy to feel jealous of our partner’s past, or even just sad that we weren’t a part of it.
They’ve been through so much without us.
Not only have they had other relationships, they’ve also travelled to other countries, had incredible experiences, and been through ups and downs that we don’t even know about.
In this week’s LOVELife, we tackle the problem of how to deal with the jealousy we can feel when we think of those experiences we’ve missed out on having with our partner for the first time.

That is really sweet of her. I loved the quote too and your take on the topic.
New favorite video!
one more thing to note is that that person would not be”that person” without their past experiences considering the Gestalt of it all.
And – Maybe if she hadnt been to London before, it would have thrown off a chain reaction of events that led to meeting you in the first place!
Time is a fascinating concept.
That is such a nice way to frame things.
Thank you for this video Matt–I really needed this right now. You right it’s better when you let people feel that we are in this together. Wish you all the best. Marta.
Oops that comment was supposed to be posted on your new video about loneliness, my bad…. Marta.
Thank you Matthew, I needed this video! I’m currently dating a guy who was married and had been in a relationship with his ex wife for 8 years. I was telling my sister how sad it made me that he had already experienced so much with her and it made me cry. I will try to hold onto this new perspective moving forward. Love you & your videos!
