In brief: Sometimes
When jealousy is justified and the rival is real, jealousy can be lessened by reducing the dependence of self worth on a particular relationship.
Other strategies for the jealous party is to work on self confidence and his/her ability to act independently. Therapy can help by reducing irrational thinking, improving communication skills, and increasing satisfaction and fairness in the relationship.
