(src)="2"> You cannot forget the bad things your spouse has said or done ; the harsh words and thoughtless acts are indelibly etched in your memory .

(src)="3"> As a result , the affection you once had has been replaced by resentment .
(trg)="3"> Wei nti , ɔdɔ a wowɔ ma no nyinaa atu ayera .

(src)="4"> You have no choice , it seems , but to endure a loveless marriage .
(trg)="4"> Wohu sɛ w’aware ayɛ tayoo ; ɔdɔ biara nnim , nanso ɛsɛ sɛ wotena ho saa ara .

(src)="5"> You resent your spouse for that too .

(src)="7"> First , though , consider a few facts about resentment .
(trg)="7"> Nanso di kan hwɛ tirimka ho asɛm kakra .

(src)="8"> Holding on to resentment creates a burden that keeps your marriage from moving forward
(trg)="8"> Tirimka anaa menasepɔw te sɛ adesoa bi ; ɛtwe aware san

(src)="9"> Resentment can destroy a marriage .
(trg)="9"> Tirimka bɛtumi asɛe aware .

(src)="10"> Why ?
(trg)="10"> Adɛn ntia ?

(src)="11"> Because it undermines the very qualities upon which a marriage should be built , including love , trust , and loyalty .
(trg)="11"> Wo deɛ hwɛ o , nneɛma a aware gyina so te sɛ ɔdɔ , ahotoso ne nokwaredi no , tirimka bɛtumi adwiriw ne nyinaa agu .

(src)="12"> In a sense , then , resentment is not the result of a marital problem ; it is a marital problem .
(trg)="12"> Enti yɛbɛka a , ɛnyɛ aware mu haw na ɛma obi fa ne dɔfo tirimka ; mmom tirimka yɛ biribi a ɛbɛtumi asɛe aware .

(src)="13"> For good reason , the Bible says : “ Put away from yourselves every kind of malicious bitterness . ” ​ — Ephesians 4 : 31 .
(trg)="13"> Wei nyinaa nti Bible ka sɛ , ‘ Monyi menasepɔw anaa tirimka nyinaa mfi mo mu . ’ ​ — Efesofo 4 : 31 .

(src)="14"> If you harbor resentment , you are hurting yourself .
(trg)="14"> Wode obi ho asɛm hyɛ wo mu a , wo ara na wohaw wo ho .

(src)="15"> Harboring resentment is like slapping yourself and then expecting the other person to feel the pain .

(trg)="19"> Sichel kaa sɛ , “ Wode obi ho asɛm hyɛ wo mu a , wo ara na wopira wo ho ; ɛnyɛ onipa no hwee . ”

(trg)="20"> Sɛ wode obi ho asɛm hyɛ wo mu a , ɛte sɛ nea worebɔ w’asom na wopɛ sɛ obi a ɔgyina nkyɛn na ɛyɛ ne yaw

(src)="20"> Resentment is a choice .

(src)="21"> Some people might doubt that .
(trg)="22"> Ebinom bɛka sɛ ɛnyɛ nokware .

(src)="22"> They would say , ‘ My spouse made me resentful . ’
(trg)="23"> Nea wɔka ne sɛ , ‘ Me kunu anaa me yere na ɛhyɛɛ me abufuw . ’

(src)="23"> The problem is , such thinking puts the emphasis on something that cannot be controlled ​ — the actions of another person .
(trg)="24"> Wɔka saa a , na wɔrepɛ akyerɛ sɛ yɛyɛ ho hwee a , ɛrenyɛ yiye , ɛfiri sɛ brane yɛmmɔ no bɛdɛ ; obi suban deɛ , wontumi nyɛ ho hwee .

(src)="25"> It says : “ Let each one examine his own actions . ”
(trg)="26"> Ɛka sɛ : “ Obiara nsɔ n’ankasa adwuma nhwɛ . ”

(src)="26"> We cannot control what someone else says or does , but we can control how we react to it .
(trg)="27"> Nea obi bɛyɛ ne nea obi bɛka deɛ , yɛntumi nyɛ ho hwee .

(src)="27"> Resentment is not the only option .
(trg)="28"> Nanso yɛn ara yɛn nneyɛe deɛ , yɛbɛtumi ayɛ ho biribi .

(src)="28"> Take responsibility for your resentment .
(trg)="29"> Enti sɛ obi yɛ biribi ma ɛhaw wo a , ɛno nkyerɛ sɛ ma wo bo mfuw .

(src)="29"> Granted , it is easy to blame your spouse .
(trg)="32"> Nanso kae sɛ abufuw deɛ , wopɛ a ɛnna wo bo fuw .

(src)="30"> But remember , resentment is a choice .

(trg)="35"> Ɛka sɛ : “ Mommma owia nnkɔtɔ mo so mo abufuw mu . ”
