It’s not uncommon to disagree with the people we love – even our romantic partners.
But when the past starts to impact the future, it may be time to make some changes.
Decoding Our Resentments
Instead of pushing any feelings of resentment aside, we can try and realize what they’re trying to tell us.
Doing so can help us work through them, accept them and move forward in a healthy way. All feelings have a purpose and something to teach us.
Express Your Needs
If you ever feel like you’re not having your needs met – it’s time to speak up!
Open communication and honesty is a two-way street.
Once you start opening up, your partner likely will as well, which in turn can strengthen your relationship.
Write And Share
Sometimes the best way to get our thoughts out is to put them down on paper.
What are your resentments?
Where do you think they come from?
What makes you think about them?
Is there anything your partner can do to help?
Oftentimes journaling can help us decode feelings we didn’t even know we had!
If you catch any new feelings pop up alongside your journaling journey, you can share them with your partner.
Every new conversation can help strengthen your bond and open up new doors.
