Forgiving – — ADD Tip o the day 132

I have a lot of grudges and resentments – slights, hurts, disappointments and things people “did to me”.  They’re really silly, we all know they harm no one except me.

I have lot of regrets, things I did or didn’t do.  If we are trying to cope with ADD or ADHD we probably have more regrets than most people.  Some of things I regret I did from meanness or greed, but a lot were just from ADD.  I did something with the best of intentions, and I messed it up or it wasn’t a good thing to do.  

Forgiving seems to be one of the hardest things for us humans to do.  But carrying all this stuff around just demoralizes and makes it harder to do things, and sets up the negative feed back loops.

The next post will be about strategies for forgiving.


I don’t know why I can’t get all the type to come up blue, or why I cant get the comments to show at all.  frustrating.  i may be building a grudge against wordpress.

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. I just published my first novel, Alma Means Soul. 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.
