Quote of the Week
“It’s better to have a hard road into excellence than an easy road into mediocrity."
- Selma Hayak
Probably everyone reading this marriage tip knows what a hard road it can be to have adult ADHD – and responses to that ADHD – in your relationship. It takes a lot of effort to create a relationship you both love to be in when dealing with distractibility and more.
But there is this weird positive side to it all. George and I have been bound together quite closely by the fact that we have taken this hard road and not only survived the experience, but learned to thrive. We feel joy, wonder, and even a little bit of pride that this hard road really did lead us to ‘excellence.’
Not everyone makes it, but it’s surprising how many couples really can turn around their relationship if both partners are willing to take that hard road and do all they can – as individuals – to be the best possible partner they can.
Is working through anger part of your hard road?
