Beatings Love and relationships
The remedy which most closely resembles Ferrum sulphuricum is Mag-s. They both have problems with relationships, with many quarrels. But Ferrum feels that the relationship has to work the way they want it to. They feel the pressure to get it right, and they exert the same pressure on their partner. Their partner has to live up to certain standards.
Ferrum may have the feeling that he or she is the only one who is making all the effort, that their partner is not doing anything towards keeping their relationship going. Because they have the delusion that their partner is not committed, they are constantly pressurising them to put more into it, which actually has the result of putting their partners off. And so we can see another vicious circle being formed.
The idea that they have to stand firm in their relationship.
they feel that the relationship should work they way they want it to. They experience a certain pressure to get it right. And they exert the same pressure on their partner to face up to their own responsibility.
This may lead to a feeling of standing all alone in the task of making the relationship work. They feel that they are the only person who is doing anything towards it, while their partner is just neglecting the relationship. This is often true, but the reason is that their partner has given up and lost all enthusiasm because of this continuous pressure.
They also feel that their partner should play a part in the bringing up of the children, or should share in doing household duties. Or they feel that they want to talk about their life together, to deepen the relationship. They have a great desire to share their emotions with their partner, to create a mutual understanding. But although they feel very strongly about this they often don’t understand that their partner may not share this same desire to talk about their emotions. The result can be a feeling of irritability towards their partner and towards others, particularly when others don’t respect their space. Even sounds made by their partner can make them very angry.
