Below is a free downloadable printout of the “Resentment Chart”.
All of us experience incidents of injustice perpetrated upon us. Whether as a child, from a boyfriend or girl friend, and sadly most often from our spouses. The closer the emotional relationship, the more we suffer internal pain.
It’s important to understand what triggers or “boundaries” are affected when we experience these hurts and how we respond to protect “self”. Different temperaments will use different tactics as self protection.
For example: In a relationship where love is conditional or only can be earned (no. 10), the Melancholy may be prone to hyper-responsibility, while the Sanguine would be more apt to be a people pleaser.
While not all inclusive, this print out is a starting guide to help you explore your own traumas.
