Topic: VIDEO CONFERENCE: When Love is a Noun…
When: Wednesday, June 1st at 9 am Pacific Time
For your NeuroDiverse partner, love is a noun, not a process. For NeuroTypicals, love means loving or engaging in acts of love that are reciprocated. Because we have empathy, love becomes a dynamic process, and over time it deepens. Not so for your “Aspie.”
Love is a thing they keep hidden in their hearts, and you are just supposed to know that. I can explain this difference to my NT clients, but it is not so easy for my clients on the Spectrum to grasp. They can learn the Rules of Engagement, or say things that sound like they are loving.
However, we NTs sense that this type of love is a thing they feel, not a love they share. The reason this is important to us NTs, is that we sorely miss the loving process. We feel alone, disconnected and unloved, even when our loved ones on the Spectrum do feel love inside, but don’t share it.
This video conference is an opportunity to better understand how lack of empathy affects love and what to do about this major loss.
