Over the last month or two, I’ve done some thinking about myself. And about my ADHD. Although I was diagnosed almost 20 years ago, I still can’t say that I ever really came to terms with it. I do still struggle with it. I’ve pretended that I don’t have it. There have been so many times, when I’ve wished I didn’t have ADHD.
But the fact is that I do have ADHD. It is a part of me. It is a small part of who I am.
Over the last few weeks, I’ve realized that I do have to come to terms with it. That it is a part of me, but it’s not the only thing that defines me and it is only a small part of who I am. There are so many other things that make me who I am.
So, instead of feeling bad about it, or focusing on the negative aspects of ADHD, I’m trying to focus on the bigger picture, focusing on the positive, and trying to figure what my ADHD can help with and how it can benefit me. Because at the end of the day, ADHD will always be a part of my life, and it can bring good things to my life, not just negative ones.
It’s definitely taken me a long time to come to this point. It is certainly something that maybe I should have come to terms with earlier. There are a few things that I think may have contributed to the fact that I haven’t done it, but I won’t get into it. It would make for a really long post, and it’s not really the point for this post.
Now, I’m at the point where I’m really coming to terms with it. It’s the path that I want to take. The road to acceptance, focusing on the positive, and really embracing the good that it can bring to my life. That’s the road that I want to take. The road to just embracing everything aspect of myself and becoming a better version of myself.
