I used to nag Angus and he used to feel like I was trying to control him. This was a symptom of us not understanding each other. What neutralized the nagging for us was both of us getting more clear in our communication so we could understand our different perspectives better.
We all live in our own separate realities and it is important, especially in intimate relationships, not to fall into the habit of making assumptions about our partner’s worldview.
A little bit of understanding went a long way in our relationship to address the neuro-divergence so we could find common ground and have more peace in our relationship.
Angus & Rohini Ross are “The Rewilders.” Listen to their podcast Rewilding Love. They believe too many good relationships fall apart because couples give up thinking their relationship problems can’t be solved. Many couples don’t know how to navigate low moods, conflict, and emotional reactivity. In this season of the Rewilding Love Podcast, Rohini and Angus help a couple on the brink of divorce due to conflict. Angus and Rohini love working with couples and helping them to reduce conflict and discord in their relationships by pointing them to their innate wisdom and wellbeing. They work with couples who are struggling and couples who would like to deepen the love and intimacy they already have. They co-facilitate a private couples' intensives retreat program that rewilds relationships back to their natural state of love.
Rohini is the author of the ebook Marriage, and they are co-founders of The 29-Day Rewilding Experience and The Rewilding Community.
