Anger & Resentment
Healing the Damage that Destroys Intimate Connection
Unfortunately, few of us come into our relationships knowing how to strongly and lovingly ask our partners for what we want and need. Most of us ride the wave of our emotions and reactions, allowing the rawest parts of ourselves to take control during difficult and sensitive moments. We default to our “Losing Strategies” venting our emotions at our partners, arguing with our partners about events, trying to “get” our partners to behave differently, being passive-aggressive,
or just giving up and shutting down.
"Resentment is a seeping poison that will quietly eat away the love, appreciation, and joy that make a relationship worthwhile."
- Nikki Loscalzo
Over time, these reactions make certain topics and issues feel impossibly loaded, leaving couples in a state where they either avoid an issue entirely or blow up about it. Either way, these behaviors foster disconnection, anger, resentment, turmoil, and pain in the relationship instead of authenticity, intimacy, understanding, and growth.
We’re left feeling disconnected, hurt, misunderstood, angry, resentful, and disappointed, and over time our relationships become less intimate, less cherishing, and not much fun. We start to blame our partners and question our relationships with them. We mistakenly believe that if we had the “right” partner, or if our partners were a “better” version of themself, or like they “used to be” these ruptures wouldn’t occur.
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
