    Dealing with Rejection

    Dealing with Rejection

    I’m not just going to leave you thinking that it’s a lost cause and that there’s nothing we can do when we’re dealing with rejection. I don't think it's like that I’ve made improvements, I’ve made shifts in my thinking and I’ve made my way forward. I think there is something that is so powerful when we remember that we’ve got a choice. It's not easy to manage rejection, but I think that there are ways that we can get better at it. I think that there are ways that we can see how it is for us and find what works rather than be resigned to a life of complete unpredictability with our emotional dysregulation. 

    Things I'm trying:
    1. How we read situations
    2. Struggles with introspection
    3. Emotional regulation strategies
    4. Movement matters 
    5. Managing racing thoughts
    6. Understanding our triggers
    7. Understanding our processes
    8. Understanding our differences

    Takeaway:
    The real problem of being labelled rejection sensitive.

    Deciphering Triggers of Rejection?

    Deciphering Triggers of Rejection?

    This episode came up from one of my patron's question about rejection and the ability to decipher what rejection stems from ADHD (or other neurodivergent conditions) and what doesn't.  The thought being, that if there were a way to figure this out, then maybe there might be a way to manage rejection better because of its source. This episode is my thoughts on the complexity I feel around rejection and why.

    Intersecting Identities and RSD

    Intersecting Identities and RSD

    Here's part two in the series on thoughts about "RSD" (rejection sensitivity dysphoria). This one is where I dive into some thoughts on rejection from an intersectional lens and wonder what kind of narrative we learn about who is rejected and how we're all forced to deal with rejection based on the identities that we hold. What kind of messages are we given about rejection? What are the expectations to manage rejection determined by? Is it all in our heads?

    Shame, Blame & Complexity

    Shame, Blame & Complexity

    This episode is one where I give some initial thoughts on shame and blame. I've been drawn to Audre Lorde's quote that "there are no single-issue problems because we don't live single-issue lives" and I really appreciate this when I think about...

    IG LIVE: Erasure, Blame & Responsibility

    This episode is a little different than I've done before. It's the audio taken from an IG Live that I recorded (and it's on my IG feed) where I finally shared my feeling and response on another podcast where it was said that there were no Black ADHD...

Finally a podcast about ADHD that I can connect to!

I’ve been following Sandra for a few months now on IG and recently I gave her podcast a listen. I’ve gotta say it’s really nice to hear someone speaking the same language that’s been rolling around in my mind regarding ADHD. I may not have all the intersectional similarities as her but the two big ones that stand out are being AFAB and being diagnosed late in life. Sandra has this wonderful way of breaking down what I wish I could untangle from my brain, and puts it into an easily digestible and relatable dialogue (for me). This podcast makes me feel less alone.

If you are looking for a pod cast that honestly talks critically about ADHD and how it affects our past, present and future give this one a listen!

Bonus! She’s got a soothing and cill voice which makes listening even that much better.

Amazing! Must Listen!

As an Autistic women with ADHD, I am in love with this podcast! I feel so validated and comforted by Sandra’s words and advice and the topics are just so relatable. Thank you!

Thank You

Thank you so much for creating this podcast series! What you’re sharing is important. ADHD does not disable us, it’s just another way of seeing/experiencing this world and your podcast helps me feel safe in that perspective. I was diagnosed in university and then overdid it with the prescribed meds until my body had enough. I then tried to suppress the diagnosis for a few years since, but I am slowly starting to accept my diagnosis and ready to work with myself, by embracing the journey. I was seeking a page on IG that did just that & here I am now, super eager to even add another book (Divergent Mind) into my 5-books-at-once rotation 😋 I can definitely relate to the heightened sensitivity and ADHD, that last episode giving me a lot to think about, but more importantly innerstand myself! Thank you 🙏🏽
