I stumbled across this piece on resentment in relationships recently and could only laugh! Don't we all experience feelings of ‘stress’ in our relationships, ill health or no? The italics are all mine - a plain English translation of counselling speak..
HOW TO SPOT RESENTMENT …IN YOURSELF
You experience sudden feelings of intense loathing towards your partner
Errr, that’s not normal?
Phew, I thought I was turning into my mother!
You feel you've stopped working together on issues
I have the Samaritans on speed dial…
He no longer agrees with everything I say .
…he totally disagrees with anything I say.
You've started to make negative comments about him to your friends.
…and complete strangers, the bank manager, service engineers…
You no longer feel you want to do him special favours.
Yes, I do…just not good ones!
You wanna hurl every time you think of him, see him or hear his complaining whiny voice.
Yes, I wanna hurl knives…really, really sharp ones.
You don't feel affectionate or sexual towards him
I shout and scream – isn’t that an expression of both?
