Episode 359: Unraveling Resentment

Prompted by a listener question, Laurie and George discuss resentment in relationships. https://bit.ly/3faKPEX Resentment is often seen as a relationship killer, but our hosts ask the audience to give permission to that feeling and listen for the deeper longing. Resentment forms as a result of unspoken and unshared pain and the attachment meaning we make of these feelings. A sexual pursuer in a relationship may develop resentment over years of hoping for more sex and it not happening. Our hosts discuss viewing resentment as a form of grief. Reframing resentment as grief creates some space to see and hold pain and share it with your partner. If we make space for that grief, we will also create space for joy over the things that we get and really work in the relationship. There is choice in resentment. If you have found yourself holding resentment in your relationship, you’ll want to make sure to download this episode!
