Plenty of people with ADHD want to spend countless hours arguing about whether ADHD is a ‘gift’ or not.
When, the reality is that it doesn’t really matter whether ADHD is a gift or a curse.
Because if you have ADHD, the bottom line is that you must learn how to make the most of living with a life-altering medical condition.
What other option do you have?
Trust me, I know first-hand that ADHD is a tough condition to manage. Your ADHD brain isn’t a good match for modern society. You embarrass yourself in public often. You quit jobs. People think you’re weird. I get it. I’ve been through these problems many times over, and I recognize the very real struggle of trying to ‘make it’ in modern society with ADHD.
But, you can choose to complain about the negative aspects of ADHD, or make the most of what you’ve got.
If ADHD is a major problem in your life, that means you probably aren’t suffering from dire hunger, Lou Gehrig’s disease, cancer, severe poverty, imprisonment, or thousands of other terrible scenarios.
The hand that you were dealt in life is far from being the worst.
ADHD is ultimately what you make of it. It can be a gift, or a curse.
