Follow your own stream when mainstream doesn’t fit

Listen to this post ...
As a neurodiverse person, your very existence is a challenge to the status quo.
 
Many will be frightened by your differences, threatened by any disruption to their own comfort.
 
Some will try to help you be normal, to fit in. To please others so you’re more likely to be accepted.
 
Then there are those who realize there’s more than one way to be human.
 
That mainstream means there’s also sidestream or crossstream or splitstream.
 
Your path is your own and the surest way for you to make your unique difference in this world.
 
The key is to learn the confidence and have the support you need to be who you are.
 
As you explore yourstream the livestream of the mainstream can get really extreme. Know what I mean?
 
It’s tougher to try and do it along. So don’t do it that way. You don’t have to do it that way.
 
It’s easier and more safe to grow among friends committed to each other’s growth than among people fighting to protect their comfort zones. Am I right?
 
There are openings for my Inner Circle. Now streaming.

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
