Resentment can destroy a relationship. Resentment, when not addressed in a healthy way, can lead to contempt, which can become uncontrollable with time. Usually, resentment stems from the feeling of not being treated the way we want to be treated. When not addressed, we start to feel negative emotions about the other person. “Resentment often develops when someone believes they are experiencing unjust or unfair treatment. There is a gap between how you want to be treated and how you are being treated. Overtime, if no correction is made, no attempt to repair what has been damaged in the relationship, negative feelings build towards the person who is hurting you,” wrote Psychotherapist Emily H Sanders as she explained resentment – reasons and signs – for us.
