What’s Your Untold Story?

ADHD & Marriage News - February 15, 2024

Quote of the Week

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside of you.”

- Maya Angelou

What's Your Untold Story?

I think most of us have untold stories inside of us.  I was lucky in that I like to write, and get at least some of mine out in my work.  I enjoy the process of thinking about what stories need to be told.

But I think there are other stories that are harder to access:

  • The pain of dreaming your life would be one way and having it turn out another
  • About loneliness in a relationship, or not feeling seen
  • The devastation of having ADHD and feeling misunderstood or judged by almost everyone

Angelou wasn’t just talking about hardship, of course.  There are happy stories that need telling, too.  The joy of seeing your daughter grow into an amazing person and knowing she’s going to be a great mom soon.  Or how you grew to carve your special place in the world.

Connection is good for us all, and stories connect.  Who can you connect with to share your stories that need telling?

There are couples out there that think Valentine’s is a great holiday. But I don’t see many of them in my marriage consulting practice. Instead, right around February 15, I inevitably start fielding calls about hopelessness & disappointment. Is this you?
