Learn to tell the difference between your “life” and your “story”.

Learn to tell the difference between your “life” and your “story”.

If you believe them to be the same, that would be incorrect.

What if I told you that in order to change the former, you must first change the latter?

Think of your life as your bare, naked body. Your story is the clothing you use to dress it up.

Sometimes you choose clothing to hide your body, to tell others you’re grieving or feel confident.

You choose the clothing that pleases others or that’s so comfortable it may as well double as pajamas.

What does your wardrobe look like?
What outfits no longer suit you?

Which allow you to show a little skin (vulnerability)?

Your story is the fashion sense you possess when choosing how to dress for life.

When you feel down a story of an achievement can lift your spirits.

This isn’t the same as the saying, “You can put lipstick on a pig and it’s still a pig.”

It’s not about slapping a coat of paint on a broken down barn and calling it a mansion.

What this is, it recognizing the power you have to choose clothing you can earn the right to wear. Like a uniform.

Create a story of a confident, compassionate woman who impacts the lives of those around her.

Then hit the gym (hire a coach) and work until the outfit fits.

Make sense?

Getting beyond RSD with ADHD

Listen to this post … I have an idea about RSD (Rejection Sensitivity Dysphoria) experienced by many with ADHD. I’ve noticed those that experience it perceive relationships in an all or nothing way. You’re loved or unloved, given attention or ignored, you’re happy when they’re happy. When in a relationship it’s often co-dependent. Wanting constant access to the

He’s going to be an adult someday so he may as well learn it now

Listen to this post … “He’s going to be an adult someday so he may as well learn it now.” This is a concerning belief in the mind of many parents raising a child with neurodivergence (ND). It demonstrates a fundamental misunderstanding about how our kids learn. Believing a consequence needs to be harsh and effective the first
