Being home all the time means that there is MORE to do in certain areas. Kids need more help and support. There is more cleaning and cooking to be done. It even takes more time and energy to put away groceries! If you’re doing more of the work but don’t have more help, you may feel (understandably) resentful.
And if we’re being honest, even before the current situation, many of us felt resentful in many areas of our lives. But while it may feel like other people — or situations — need to change before we feel less resentful, there are actually things we can do to change the dynamic.
In this episode, we’ll talk about how resentment affects both you and your relationships… and what specific actions you can do to reduce resentment and its impact.
- How resentment affects our energy, our behavior, and our relationships
- Why (in our defense) it’s so hard to reduce resentment
- 4 action steps to take to make it more likely that you will set and maintain boundaries to reduce resentment
