Why do we feel jealous? Jealousy is often a complex, catch-all word that encompasses the emotions of fear, anxiety, disappointment, or anger.


Some people romanticize this feeling in relationships. Others use jealousy as a justification for controlling and destructive behaviour.


On this episode, Sara sits down with Emily, Dedeker, and Jase, the hosts of the Multiamory Podcast (, to unpack the topic of jealousy.


We start off by defining what jealousy is, and sharing candid personal experiences to show it’s a familiar, normal feeling.


Instead of trying to avoid or repress jealousy at all costs, Emily, Dedeker and Jase provide a healthy perspective and evidence-based tools on how to deal with jealousy, based on their own relationship research.


Ultimately, feeling some jealousy could be a sign that there’s something you need to work on in a relationship with a partner or on yourself. And it’s crucial to do some self-reflection to identify the root cause of the emotion.


This episode is filled with practical advice about navigating difficult emotions in relationships. Tune in now to understand what your jealous feelings are telling you, and how you can manage them the next time you experience it.
