Relationships are powerful. They have the power to wound and to heal. Sometimes our negative experiences leave us feeling anxious or depressed. We get stuck in ruts and do the same ineffective things over and over again. Additionally, neurodivergent people (with ADHD, ASD, High IQ, Dyslexia) have complex emotional, thinking, and relational challenges. Being misunderstood deepens isolation and heightens anxiety.
