Relationships Stir Things Up So We Can See Ourselves More Clearly - Episode 037

Welcome to the thirty-seventh episode of Harness Your ADHD Power, a podcast show I created to explore the many facets of adult life with ADHD and how you can learn to harness your personal ADHD power to become unstoppable.

I’m so glad you could join me today.  Whether it’s the relationship with you, someone else or both, relationships are definitely wonderful vehicles for helping us to see ourselves more clearly and presenting us with opportunities for transformation.

I’m not just talking about the communication or lifestyle challenges or differences of opinion that you have with others or even within yourself.  No.  I’m talking about the deeper issues of your history or baggage, the meanings you’ve given it that have shaped your personal stories, and often slammed your self-confidence and self-esteem into the ground; and your beliefs and values that have taken a hit too.

And what about your intentionality in your relationships?  Do you choose your relationships with negotiable and non-negotiable criteria that are well thought out, and honor your commitment to yourself, rather than impulsively jumping into relationships that don’t match your criteria, because you are “impulsively reacting” rather than responding according to your criteria?

How about your self-awareness and clarity?  Do you know yourself so well that you are crystal clear on exactly what you need your relationship with yourself to be; how you need to speak to yourself, treat yourself, be with yourself, motivate yourself, celebrate yourself, and organize your life so you are set up for successful outcomes?  And what about your relationships with others?  Are you equally clear about the people you will and won’t be in a relationship with, personally and professionally?  And do you keep your word or commitment to yourself, on this sacred non-negotiable? I suspect that most of you don't.

In this episode, I’m going explore the many ways that cultivating a healthy and loving relationship with your SELF isn’t a selfish act; in fact, it’s critical as an essential building block on the road to your success in academia, the workplace and your coupleship/family life or other relationships.

It takes courage to own the truth of your life and transform it into something extraordinary, if it isn’t that already.  Acceptance isn’t resignation; it’s starting with what is and moving forward from there. 

That’s what we’re doing in the ADDventures in Achievement™ program.  If you’re tired of being stuck and ready to go after the happier and more productive life you want, come join us.  You’ll learn from my 30+ years of experience in weekly coaching calls, workshops, and a private forum space for deep personal work with other like-minded adults where you have access to me 6 days a week for support, solutions and accountability.  I don’t believe in Band-Aids that will only disappear down the road.  I believe in helping you move from stuck to unstoppable by getting to whatever you’re missing and need to learn.  We’ve all had a belly full of judgment, criticism and punishment, whether it’s come from others or ourselves.  I encourage you to break free of that life and join us for your ADDventures in Achievement™.

A Favorite Quote:

Louise Hay said, “The one person I am with forever is me.  My relationship with myself is eternal, so I choose to be my own best friend.  I choose to love and accept myself and talk to myself as I would to a beloved person in my life.  I saturate all the cells in my body with love, and they become vibrantly healthy.  I relate with love to all of life.”  The question I have for you at this point of our journey together is, “If you don’t currently have this depth of loving relationship with yourself, are you willing to begin to cultivate and sustain it now?”  I hope so because it will change your life forever!
