criticisms tip of the day 6

I am persistent, you are stubborn.

I am decisive, you are impulsive.

I am laid back, you are sloppy.

other: ” you are apathetic and indifferent!”

me:”I don’t care.”

I mess up a lot, and I get a lot of criticism.

 I need to take an honest look at the criticism, and decide if I need to apologize and if I need to try to change something.

trying harder won’t work, I will need to make a strategy if I decide to change.

I need to realize that the criticsim is about my behavior.

It does not mean that I am a bad or worthless person.


your life can be better

i messed up on the last post.

no matter how hard i tried, i couldn’t add an image to it.

About doug with ADHD

I am a psychiatric physician. I learned I have ADHD at age 64, and then wrote two ADHD books for adults, focusing on strategies for making your life better. Your Life Can Be Better; strategies for adults with ADD/ADHD available at, or (for e books) Living Daily With Adult ADD or ADHD: 365 Tips O the Day ( e-book). This is one tip at a time, one page at a time, at your own pace. It's meant to last a year. As a child, I was a bully. Then there was a transformation. Now I am committed to helping people instead abusing them. The Bully was published in January, 2016. It's in print or e book, on Amazon.
