Forgiveness, It’s Free ADD/ADHD Medication

Posted Jan 01 2012 11:03am

Happy New Year! Lets get 2012 off to a forgiving and progressive start. Many ADD’ers get caught up in the hyperactivity of emotions, thoughts and a million things running through their heads. Slowing down and establishing a thought process and balance of emotions is something that needs to be learned and managed. It can be done. Within this process, forgiveness can sometimes be a challenge for an ADD’er. I was recently skimming through a book I read a while ago called Dare To Forgive by Edward Hallowell . There are some interesting points in the book, a lot of fluff too. Then again, people have probably read my book and think it’s got a lot of fluff as well, it’s how authors fill pages! Ironically, a few moments after I put the book down I had the radio on, yes people still listen to the radio, and I heard an old song by Don Henley called The Heart Of The Matter. It has some great word about forgiveness in the lyrics:

All the people in your life who’ve come and gone
They let you down, you know they hurt your pride
Better put it all behind you; cause life goes on
You keep carrin’ that anger, it’ll eat you up inside
I wanna be happily ever after
And my heart is so shattered
But I know it’s about forgiveness
Forgiveness 

Very powerful words, right? There is a good message in that song. Working on a thought process and managing ADD can be accomplished and one of the pieces of the puzzle for many, is learning to forgive. Forgiveness allows us to move past issues, focus on more relevant tasks at hand and allows us to stop wasting time and emotions. Forgiveness is almost like a free form of ADD medication :)
