Sometimes people with Attention Deficit Disorder get very frustrated with themselves because of the ways they do things. We can spend a lot of time and energy trying to change these things. While we can learn new skills and strategies, changing the way our brains work isn’t a very easy thing to do. Many times the energy we spend getting angry at ourselves is very destructive.
Even with all the best structure, support, and treatment options there are going to be times when things are still very challenging to people with Attention Deficit Disorder. Accepting that we are going to have challenging moments from time to time can be the first step in learning how to deal with these moments. Beating ourselves up because of these moments can just make these moments worse.
