Tips for Thriving in your Marriage
|Quote of the Week||Quick Links|
“Why was I so unable to do something so painfully simple? Whatever sense of professional competence we feel in adult life is less the sum of accomplishment than the absence of impossibility: it’s really our relief at no longer having to do things we were never any good at doing in the first place – relief at never again having to dissect a frog or memorize the periodic table.”
- Adam Gopnik, on learning how to draw as an adult (from New Yorker, 6/27/11)
|An Opportunity for Humility|
I was struck by this concept that adult life is about the absence of impossibility because it made me wonder if this is the case for those with ADHD. It seems as if there is no “relief at no longer having to do things we were never good at doing” for most ADHD adults because the daily chores associated with raising families tend to require skills such as organizing and being on time that are so hard with ADHD.
