Why do we have resentment towards the people are very close to us?

Thank you Mr.Man it sounds good in theory.
In practice, we find people very difficult to handle.
For instance, you find very difficult people in this forum sometimes.

If things are too overwhelming I think sometimes the best thing to do is take a step back.

Resentment is part of the human condition. It is there in our heart and then we allow it to latch onto an object (at hand). Being born is the root cause of resentment.
