Do you feel like you are carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders just now? The Ten of Wands signifies carrying a heavy burden, which can usually be seen in that you have a lot of work to do.
This workload is not the type you can see the end of clearly either. It just keeps building up upon itself. When you think you can see the light at the end of the tunnel by having finished everything that needs done, something else pops up for you to do.
All of this can put you into quite a sullen mood where you don't feel like doing much else except getting on with the job at hand. Yet the emotions that come with the Ten of Wands are those of wanting to be alone and cutting yourself off from others, in an effort to conserve your strength and energy to get on with the task at hand. You can see how this may not work so well when it comes to your relationships.
This card often comes up when one partner is a workaholic and their thinking is totally focused on work to the exclusion of all else. If this resonates for you then you need to realise that you can't expect others to fall into line and always understand why you need to work 24/7. Sometimes you have to give a little in order to keep relationships running smoothly, and with the Ten of Wands you are certainly giving very little… if at all.
There is no use trapping yourself further by taking on more of a workload. You need to look for ways you can come out from under your burden and start living a life that is more in line with what you yearn.
