Self flogging — ADD Tip o the Day 293

I don’t know if self flogging is a  part of ADD or ADHD, or if we  just have more occasions to do it.  Roni posted about this on ADDer World, and she plans to stop  it, which is good.  Self flogging only makes things worse,; it does not motivate, it demoralizes.  so we need strategies.

How to change a habit.  recognizing the problem and deciding to do something about it is the first step.   Then spotting.  That means you note it every time – “Oh, there I go again, self flogging.”  Amazingly, sometimes that is enough, after a while.  If not, then you need countering self talk – Roni is cute, and helps troubled kids, and has made enough that she doesn’t need a job – must’ve done something right, so she could argue with The Critic. 


They do say that self abuse is better than no abuse at all.

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.
