Hurt feelings are hiding under resentment

Hurt feelings are hiding under resentment
When you find yourself feeling resentful and angry at someone, hurt feelings are often the cause.

5. If you don’t pray, this is a wonderful time to start. On your knees, sitting or dancing, make sure you and Joe pray together. There is no one single thing that will offer your marriage more hope at this time than praying for it together.
6. Remember that many times our hurt feelings are misplaced and projected on someone else, but are actually meant for us. What areas have you neglected in yourself, Erica? You are a mom, a wife, but what else? If you have let your passions die and have not taken time to take care of developing your own interests, then that is not Joe’s fault. It should not be part of the reason you are criticizing or blaming him either.
7. Joe, stay the course. Walking away when you don’t have anything to say looks like abandonment to the person who is being walked away from. Part of “fixing this problem” is listening and understanding the feelings.
One day at a time, Erica. You can do this, and if you and Joe both want the marriage to work, you can overcome these feelings of hurt and become closer to Joe in the process. Bless you, Mjo
