None of us want to lose, .

And failure can be painful.

NPR reports you can transform your life by getting better at losing.

As adults, we're expected to be able to deal with adverse situations in socially acceptable ways.

But we still feel angry, and we still feel sad.

Experts say a common trait among sore losers is an unwillingness to "take ownership of their own fallibility.".

To avoid being a sore loser, practice the core components of self-compassion, mindfulness, human commonality and self-kindness.
