In last week’s podcast, I discussed healing your own resentments. This week, we turn to dealing with your spouse’s resentments. Let’s be clear: really, this is about helping your spouse to heal resentments. You can’t actually do the healing. You can only help.
Once you address your own resentments, you know part of the secret: resentment comes from anger, unresolved. Anger comes from hurt, unresolved and unaddressed. Which leads us back to helping your spouse find healing — tracking back to anger, but really back to hurt.
