In this episode, I address a couple of my own stand-out quirks that have not only gotten me into a bit of trouble, but that have also been misunderstood.

For years, I had no idea of the effect I had on so many past friendships that, while all the negative talk reached me eventually, I simply wasn't aware of the things I was doing that were hurtful. Moreover, I didn't understand why I was the way I was, or why I behaved the way I did.
 
It's still difficult to overcome, and yes - sometimes the ADHD just wins - but while ADHD is an explanation, it's not an excuse for me to repeat those behaviors. I do my best. For those of us with ADHD, we really are trying. And the more we become aware of our tendencies, sometimes - it doesn't always feel great.

But, as long as we are improving and putting in the effort to be our best selves, that's what is within our control.

Thanks to ADHD reWired's Coaching and Accountability groups, I've been able to connect with other fellow owners of ADHD brains from all over the globe.

The Alumni community is where we all get continuing support, even after coaching sessions have finished - and it's the place where my dream of starting a podcast was no longer just an idea. I found the tools, the resources, and most of all - the support - to turn ideas into action and make this possible.

  • What's in your bucket of ideas you want to take action on?
