“Compassion isn’t about solutions. It’s about giving all the love you’ve got.” - Cheryl Strayed
Compassion and acceptance are about giving all the love you’ve got. Managing ADHD symptoms so you can both thrive is about creating plans and finding solutions. BOTH need to be present in your relationship if you are going to succeed.
If you’re reading this, you are probably already thinking in terms of solutions. Are you also following through on giving all the love you’ve got?
