Blast from the past

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Lifestyle - Collin Ro­drigues collin.ro­drigues@htlive.com

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:

BE SE­CURE

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.
