“One of the things I love about ADHD brains is that we can create these crazy connections that other people wouldn’t have thought of.”
“It’s okay to let go and start on something new. I see a lot of ADHD women, especially, who feel bad doing that. We’ve had this reinforcement in our lives where it’s not okay to switch things because maybe we switched ‘too frequently’. But it’s a valuable life skill to know when it’s time to let something go.”
“There’s a balance of wanting to set a deadline because then it will get done and people are relying on us. But also, we want to make sure we’ve created enough space that we can get it done without killing ourselves.”
