Ever find yourself wrangling thoughts, and wondering why things are so difficult? Whether you have been diagnosed with a developmental difference or you believe you have one, this is the blog for you.
As an adult with ADHD, High Functioning Autism/Asperger’s, Learning Disabilities or any of the other many Neurodiversity’s, we often find ourselves living in a world that doesn’t match our needs or abilities.
Life can be overwhelming and exhausting. And in this overconnected and misinformed world our brains are running at max speed!
As a result, we now have a much greater tendency towards anxiety and overwhelm.
And when our anxiety is high and we are overwhelmed, it’s much harder if not impossible, to tap into what many might call commonsense, or wisdom.
So, as a small reminder I have curated this list as a short but powerful guide to getting back on track and keeping our perspectives in a more positive light.
Knowing your weaknesses and fears is one thing, acknowledging them and sharing them with those you trust is another. That kind of work requires incredible bravery especially from a neurodiverse perspective.
Trust can be challenging for many people, but it can be especially tricky for those of us who’s brains are wired in a way that makes us more anxious.
Vulnerability in particular requires a great sense of trust, and for many people who have spent a lifetime struggling to feel at ease with others, this can be a very difficult hurdle to overcome, but one that is definitely worth the work.
