can a person resent their spouse?
People sometimes resent their spouses, not intentionally, but it manifests through their actions. It starts to infiltrate how a couple relates to one another, hidden behind uncharacteristic decisions and second guesses. It’s not uncommon territory for any married couple, but while some people’s resentment may last one phone call or it’s gone the second you park the car, others let their resentment linger. It’s tragic how quickly love transforms into regret.
Judgments stagnant a relationship; you get shackled to the past, not allowing your heart to move forward with its love. Someone asked me how this happens; I have no flipping idea, but I know closure is key when unlocking any emotional padlock.
If this is speaking to you, maybe there is something left unsaid in your marriage. An issue is hidden deep in the archives, troubling you more than you realize. Get it off your chest, out in the open. The fear of backlash means we harbor resentment that anchors us between combinations of what-ifs. One way or the other, what you are feeling will find its way into the open, so why not choose to do it on your terms.
