Choosing the Right Partner with Ruth Leah Schwartz (in conversation with Waylon Lewis).

Aired -

In Part One, Waylon and Ruth spoke about about (lesbian and other) relationships, communication, U-hauls and island living. Give it a listen before diving into Part Two.

Here, in Part Two, Ruth is back and they talk sex, sexuality, communication and…can we actually grow up and change or are our brains stuck, solid? Neuroplasticity is a big, fancy word that Ruth explains to Waylon. 

"Deep emotional change is hard. We are creatures of habit, and our neural pathways are set up to make things simpler in this complex world. And so, of course, if there's well worn grooves, we're going to follow them over and over and over.

And...if there weren't learning possible, none of us would be here. We have brains that are capable of incredible learning. And we see examples of that every day." ~ Ruth Leah Schwartz
