Default I was thinking about compersion while I was gardening

.....and it suddenly struck me that so much is made of compersion but maybe there needs to be a word to describe the sense of satisfaction and joy a poly can feel by helping their partners to cope better with the situation? If my partner is anything to go by you guys do stuff up at times by either taking the situation for granted or in subtle ways trying to push out agreed to parameters. Is this really any different to jealousy?
