RAMIFICATIONS OF RESENTMENT

OVERCOMING RESENTMENT

EMPATHY

  1. Together: Set an intention together to recreate empathy — start with a conscious decision that’s named.
  2. Together: Agree to press the restart button on your relationship.
  3. Together: Take turns in communicating. One partner has the opportunity bring up anything difficult or less than positive to the other, he/she is heard and understood fully, without rebuttal. Then, the next day the other partner has the same opportunity.
