ADHD in Women

Self esteem

I’m having trouble moving through past mistakes enough to see a brighter future. Any advice?


We can’t live in the past; we can’t undo our mistakes. If you are religious, and have a God, and have asked for forgiveness…accept that forgiveness. To not do so is to spit in his/her/its face, and make yourself God again. Move on by calling three people, and asking how THEY are. Tell them how much they mean to you, that you like their smile/laugh/eyes/anything. Dont’ be maudlin; keep it light, and say nothing about you. By being a light to someone else, your own light shines brighter. Made some mistakes? Welcome to the human race! Best of luck.
