"I, like many others with ADHD, am aware of my potential emotional instability. However, my self-awareness doesn’t stop it from occurring. If anything, it can become more frustrating because I know my reaction is disproportionate to the situation but I am helpless to stop it. This frustration leads to self-anger, which further pulls me into the depths of my own emotional upheaval. I know firsthand that patience and empathy can be a sandbar to someone who is flooded by emotions of anger, frustration, excitement or anxiety. Societal expectations can pressure us with ADHD to stifle our emotions in order to maintain a status quo and avoid causing discomfort to others. By validating our emotions and allowing us the room to express ourselves (in a healthy manner) we can better navigate our response without additional guilt and shame and safely find our way back to the shore."
