Hello everyone... came across this quote and I immediately reflected upon my ADHD and its problems upon my marriage.
"The greatest gift you can give another is the purity of your attention." - Richard Moss
ADHD, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, is what I have. I'm a man with ADHD and going thru a divorce because of it. My thread is here http://www.adhdmarriage.com/content/find-volunteer-slapper-your-husband-and-reason
Attention is the greatest gift for anyone to give. One must simply give attention to a spouse, before a spouse will surely get one's attention with a divorce. This concept of giving attention sounds so simple, it should be and is for most... but it's the very reason so many ADD/ADHD people and their marriages are doomed from the start. It's an awful, cursed disorder upon a once happy, loving couple/family. At first, it doesn't seem fair to have ADHD, but I guess life isn't fair... one can just choose to live with it.... or one can choose to live, learn and make it better for all. Once knowing that we all already possess the greatest gift, it is so wise to start giving it to those that matter most in our lives.
