Resentment can be a cancer in a relationship. If not dealt with intensively, then it can destroy the relationship.
My couples usually present with issues sounding something like, “He gets mad at everything I do.” Or “No matter what, I cannot please her.”
When my couples discuss being upset and “picky” or “critical”, these are often signs that resentment is involved in the relationship.
Signs you could be experiencing resentment:
- Thinking that you are doing more than your fair share.
- Feeling like you are giving more than you are getting.
- Believing that your partner is not pulling their weight.
- Sensing that you are making all the sacrifices.
Can you relate to any of these signs? I can help so it does not destroy your relationship.
