Blast from the past
Reportedly, a few days back, Farhan Akhtar, Shraddha Kapoor’s alleged beau, and Aditya Roy Kapur, her alleged ex, fought at a party. This was because Shraddha was supposedly bonding with Aditya, which didn’t go well with Farhan. Post this Shraddha even did damage control. It’s a know fact that most people don’t like their partner’s ex. Often, things turn ugly if you bump into them. There is always a possibility that some pleasantries may be exchanged. Here’s what experts have to say:
Dr Ambrish Dharmadhikari, psychiatrist, explains how best to deal with situations like these. He says, “Jealousy is the first emotion that is evoked in such a situation. One should be welcoming to your partner’s ex. Your partner is not a trophy. You should have confidence in your relationship. One should remember that a positive reaction at such times reflects a sense of security in your current relationship. There should be a limit, but a courtesy greeting would save a lot of trouble.”
TALK ABOUT IT
There’s a possibility of your partner interacting with his/ her ex at such a meeting which may not go down well with you. But, Dharmadhikari says one should not try to convey your displeasure immediately. Instead, discuss the issue with your partner in private.
