Being an Adult With ADHD Can Be a Problem & an Opportunity: 4 Steps to Start Healing by Brian King
So many adults with ADHD live with poor self-esteem and a trunk full of painful memories that impact their ability to enjoy life. Words like "bullying," "embarrassing," "lonely" and more are used to describe their experience of childhood. It was the same for me. The good news is the past doesn’t have to equal the future. You can heal the past hurts to make room for happiness in the present. It takes work but you owe it to yourself and to your kids to be the best you. Here are a few tips to get started:
- Write a letter to your younger self explaining how important it is to hang in there because of the things they'll get to experience in the future.
- Give yourself permission to grieve your less-than-perfect childhood.
- Forgive the adults who didn't know what they didn't know.
- Remind yourself daily that you're worthy of love and respect.
