Gohan went through so much as a child, where the lives of he, his family and friends were at risk of being killed or destroyed multiple times. I think he understood why Goku felt responsible for many of the villains that threatened them, and while he wished he could have stayed behind, he knew his dad didn’t want to do anything to harm his loved ones, and if his being there would bring the most harm, then he’d prefer death.

Editor’s Note: I never thought of Gohan as resenting Goku. I always thought he admired him…?
