Life can be rough when you live with ADHD.
My son Zach and I had similar experiences growing up. Teachers who didn’t understand (some wanted to, others didn’t).
Peers would target us because our emotions were fragile and they enjoyed kicking us while we were down. Sound familiar?
It would’ve been easy to grow up angry and bitter. That tends to be a common phase for each of us to grow through (yes, grow not go).
On the other side of those hard feelings is gratitude.
WHAT? Gratitude! For being treated like SHIT? Not quite.
When you see adversity as the fire a blacksmith uses to shape metal into something more. Something strong and engineered to solve a specific problem.
That my friend, is what living with ADHD can prepare you to bring to the world.
Let’s be honest here, we each gave up at one point and tried to commit suicide. Zach is writing about his experience with this in his first book. So the journey has been about as rough as you can imagine.
Fortunately, by working through those thoughts and feelings of helplessness, we discovered a compassionate confidence.
A gentle strength we now use to help others with ADHD navigate the storm it can create in your life.
But to achieve any of this you must choose life every single day.
Choose to be a student of your adversity, be grateful for opportunities to sharpen yourself. But please don’t do it alone. That can be like trying to breathe underwater without an oxygen tank.
Work with us because we know what’s it’s like to live in it and work through it.
Sometimes you have to dig the tunnel yourself to see the light at end of it. But you don’t have to dig alone.
