Alice is a former retroactive jealousy sufferer from the UK.

A year ago, she was distraught: plagued by constant, obsessive thoughts and worries about her partner’s past.

Today, Alice is, in her own words, “back to [her] old self.”

Gone are the constant mental movies, and incessant curiosity. Instead, she says “I feel like myself” again: back to focusing on her current relationship, work, friends–all the stuff one should be focused on, instead of obsessive thinking about an imaginary past.

After posting about her transformation in our private Facebook group for students taking my online course, I asked Alice if she’d be willing to share her story. She agreed, and we had a great conversation via Skype.

As I told Alice, it’s great getting success story emails from my students, but it’s even better to connect with them face to face.

Nothing beats seeing the smiling, happy faces of students on my computer screen–faces of people who’ve been to hell and back, liberated from retroactive jealousy, and enjoying new, healthier, happier lives and relationships in the wake of RJ.

Below you can watch my conversation with Alice, in which she talks about how she managed to overcome retroactive jealousy, the most helpful tools from the course, the incredible importance of talking to other RJ sufferers who “get it,” and much more.

If you have any doubt that you, too, have the ability to overcome retroactive jealousy for good, you owe it to yourself to give this a watch.

Alice is living proof that anyone can overcome retroactive jealousy–all it takes is a little effort and the right tools.

I got there, Alice got there, and you can, too.
