Focusing on the wrong thing

When it comes to ADHD, it is so easy to focus on the negative, the challenges, and the struggles of having this type of brain. It’s something that I have been guilty of doing. I’m sure I’m not the only one with ADHD who has focused on the negative side of this disorder.

It can be so easy to forget about the good aspects of having ADHD. The positives can be overshadowed by all the struggles that comes with ADHD.

Since starting this blog, learning more about ADHD, reading about it, and listening to podcasts about ADHD, I’ve been learning about the good things about this condition, becoming more aware of the good ADHD brings to my life, and focusing a little more on the good.

So, here’s a list of the positive things that ADHD can bring to someone’s life and these aren’t just limited to me. These traits can be found in many people with ADHD.

  • Curiosity
  • Problem solving
  • Compassion
  • Sense of humour
  • Perseverance
  • Hyperfocus
  • Ingenuity

And these are just a few of the many positive traits that ADHD can bring. These are the things that we should be focusing on, instead of the negative side of ADHD.

So, I think that it’s time that we do. That we have these conversations with people about the good. Let’s share the good and positive.
