Ep 62: Resolving Conflict In Neurodivergent Relationships

When one or more partners in a relationship are neurodivergent, it can add unique challenges to a marriage.

Neurodiversity refers to a variation in how one’s neurology (their brain and nervous system) operate. It includes autism, ADHD, OCD, sensory processing difficulties, and other brain variations. 

This means your brain (or your partner’s brain) processes the world differently than the majority of humans. This is not a problem in and of itself. Where the problem comes in is when you try to change each other instead of working to accept each other.

But what if it’s a good thing that your partner sees the world differently than you do? 

What if it’s good that he/she processes information in a totally unique way than you do?

What would it look like to see the beauty in the way their brain works – instead of striving to change something that’s not meant to be changed?

Listen to today’s episode to learn how to make connection easier in your neurodivergent relationship.
