When You Feel Slighted
Posted 2022-05-03 by Margaret Thompson in Couples Therapy

What do you do when you feel slighted by your partner? How you manage your hurt feelings determines what happens next in your relationship, ..  and in your life.

Women who know how to resolve these feelings have changed their perspective.

They are women who have decided to stop blaming their partners, or their careers, kids, etc. and embraced what I call their “wise woman.”

When you stop blaming, it transforms your basic way of being. This is what it looks like.

You look inside yourself to understand your triggers and change the way you relate to your problems. You move from reacting to your partner to responding to what he has said or done to hurt you.

You focus on your own needs and feelings instead of putting everyone else’s needs before your own. Here’s why this is so important.

You have inherited patterns of invisibility from generations of women before you. Your engrained DNA prompts you to hide yourself, because you don’t know how to presence yourself, to be seen and heard by your partner.

When you become fully present and authentically express your needs and feelings, he can see you, hear you and love you.
