ADHD Acceptance Month – Acceptance means…

ADHD Butterfly Source

Acceptance means…

Acceptance means that ADHD people don’t have to go through what I did, and what so many others have.

Acceptance means that ADHD people get to create an identity rather than having it eroded.

Acceptance means ADHD people will will be able to focus on their strengths, instead of hyperfocusing on their weaknesses.

Acceptance means ADHD people will love themselves for who they are – not who they’ve been made to believe they should be.

Acceptance means ADHD people will put their own needs first, rather than living for the expectations and approval of others.

Acceptance means ADHD people will be treated with unconditional positive regard in all aspects of their lives so that they may grow into the people they want to be.

Acceptance means ADHD people will love this about themselves, rather than viewing it as a curse.

Acceptance means ADHD people won’t have to fight for basic acceptance, we won’t have to deal with uncompromising systems that seek to destroy that which makes us great.

Acceptance means a better world for everyone, a more creative, loving, human embracing society that recognises the value of all people.

Acceptance means doing my part to make this all achievable.

Acceptance means the capacity to feel love and to be loved – no one should ever be denied that.

Daily blog challenge

October is here usually known as ‘ADHD Awareness Month’ – but IMO we ADHDers deserve more than that – we deserve acceptance. We need to be listened to, we need realistic accommodations, and help. We need to start moving toward ADHD Pride Month. People should be able to feel proud of being ADHDers, because the alternative is shame.

For 31 days I will be writing every day on being an ADHDer using this list of prompts:
