Ask Dr B about Relationships: My ADHD Makes All Kinds of Relationships Hard - Episode 059

Hey ADDers! If you’re married, living together, dating, have close friends or it’s you and you…these are all different forms of relationships that you are in. And where there are relationships, there are potential challenges and delightful times to be shared.

I look at relationships as kind of a progression. First, there is the relationship you have with yourself. Then there is the relationship you have with one other person, whether that’s a friendship or coupleship or partnership in business. From there, your coupleship or partnership could expand into a family or expansion of a business. Point is, in my mind it always starts with you.  If I'm describing your life, then this episode is for you!!

In this episode, I talk about:

  • Relationship With Yourself
  • Relationship With Another
  • Relationship With Family or Team
  • Stories About Relationships From Listeners
  • New Programs Coming Soon - Couples in Motion & ADDventures Companion
  • The Importance Of Celebrating Your WINS

A Favorite Quote:

Henri Bergson said, “To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly.” So, the question I have for you at this point of our journey together is, are you ready and willing to change and receive all that change will bring into your life? I hope so because this is your life we are talking about!!

I hope you are taking steps every day towards your heart’s desire. And, if you need some support or skills or strategies to reach your goal, be sure to reach out and let’s chat. Perhaps ADDventures in Achievement, Couples in Motion or ADDventures Companion is the place you can become that person with the support of our community and the training I provide.
