I’m a lucky guy.

For one thing, I get paid to do what I love: help people improve their relationships, let go of jealousy and possessiveness, and enjoy better lives.

It’s a lot of work. It involves a lot of late nights and early mornings. But I wouldn’t want it any other way.

Not long ago I woke up to find this email in my inbox (transcript below):

Subject: My sincere thanks

Dear Zachary,

Your work on Retroactive Jealousy is nothing short of brilliant. It has helped me tremendously. My case of RJ was not terribly severe but it was enough to cause me considerable unease and angst. And get this, it was about stuff that happened 40 years ago!

Twice in the past, 25 years ago and one year ago I experienced retroactive jealousy and thought I had resolved it. Then one month ago it resurfaced and I decided to meet it head on.

I purchased your book and course and then went to work.

I completely agree RJ is rooted in insecurity. I committed to identifying and working on my insecurities via personal development.

I tended to live in the past, and not just concerning RJ. Cultivating a present mindset and recognizing the past is an illusion based on ego was key.

Indeed retroactive jealousy was a blessing in disguise. I’m a lot more comfortable in my own skin.

Again my deep and sincere thanks and gratitude for your work.

With most regard,


I love getting emails like this.

Few things are as satisfying to me than finding notes like this in my inbox from former retroactive jealousy sufferers.

And I don’t share to brag–I want to prove to anyone struggling with retroactive jealousy that you are not alone. And there is a way out–George discovered it, and so did I.

You can read dozens more retroactive jealousy success stories on this page.

After I read George’s email I decided to take things a step further.

I responded to George, asking him if he’d be willing to hop on a quick Skype call to talk about his experience.

He replied back very quickly, telling me he’d be happy to.

Watch the video below to hear George’s story:

As you can see, my experience was no fluke.

Overcoming retroactive jealousy is absolutely possible for anyone willing to put in the work.
