All or Nothing Is Not a Good Way to Think (Especially When You Have ADHD) by Brian King

All or Nothing Is Not a Good Way to Think (Especially When You Have ADHD)

"Things will NEVER change." 

"It's ALWAYS been this way."

When you find yourself stuck in sadness, anxiety or in your thinking, chances are you're practicing all or nothing thinking. This is a common trap for people with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and very important to become aware of for your emotional, psychological and relationship health.

Freedom and solutions are found in the gray and rarely in the extremes.

I understand that defaulting to right or wrong, this or that thinking, can make it easier to make decisions. But it also greatly limits your options.
