Being a single person at a wedding can be extremely aggravating. It is not uncommon to face taunts and ridicule for remaining single. It can be especially upsetting when your friend is getting married and you are attending their wedding. Then, all of your fears of not being able to meet “the one” cloud your mind, making you doubt yourself. Here are some possible reasons why you might be jealous of your friends’ weddings to help you feel better.
It’s perfectly normal
It’s natural to be jealous when you see a friend get married. You may have a subconscious fear that you will be in her position someday. You may also be concerned that the equation in your friendship will shift once your friend marries. As a result, identifying why you’ve been feeling this way will make it easier for you to overcome them.
When you’re jealous of someone, it’s natural to start doubting yourself. You will begin to have negative thoughts about why you haven’t met the perfect partner yet, and these thoughts will likely spiral downward, leading you to vent on your friend.
Ask yourself, “are you ready”
Before you start wondering why you don’t have a picture-perfect scenario like your friend, consider whether you’re ready to get married soon. Putting a ring on that finger is a huge commitment, and you should be completely honest and prepared to make that commitment.
Get busy in wedding preparations
This is the best way to keep yourself occupied if such thoughts have been bothering you far too often. Do something special for your friend during the wedding preparations because it will make her happy, which will make you happy with your preparations.
If you still harbour jealousy or negative feelings for your friend, it’s best to be honest about it. Tell your friend what has been bothering you. Rather than unintentionally ruining the wedding, it’s best to congratulate her and tell her how you’ve been feeling lately. She will undoubtedly appreciate your candor.
