Navigating Jealous Feelings Requires Self-Awareness And 'Compersion'

Our new series is all about figuring out the challenges of modern life.

We don't know about you, but we generally go through life with a lot of questions.

Let's say, for example, you're at a bar with a group of friends. You're having a great time, when all of a sudden, out of the corner of your eye, you see your partner talking, shall we say, enthusiastically, to someone else. It's OK, this happens to all of us.

How are you supposed to react? Is it normal for your lizard brain to take over and flood you with intense sadness or rage? Would a more enlightened person just smile through it, without a care in the world? How can you navigate your jealousy?

We've got your back.

Our new series, "Navigating," is all about figuring out the challenges of modern life. Host and producer Kait Howell enlists a wide variety of experts and gurus to try to navigate the path into adulthood. Don't worry, you're not in this alone.
