[ADHD] Quote of the Day

Good morning.

I’m back home.  Having coffee and making the rounds and I found this, which I want to share with you!

My message is simple. There are millions of people living with neurological conditions that are simply existing; trying to fit in with a world and population where most won’t, or can’t bend their idea of normal; and at the same time, assume that normal is something everyone aspires to be. Living as someone other than your true self is my idea of torture, and that’s what most people want from us so they can feel comfortable.

I wanted to be the voice that said, “You’re damn right we aren’t normal! We’re AMAZING! We’re WACKY! We’re GENIUSES! We’re bearing millions of gifts for the world to enjoy and you can’t see that –all you seem to notice is how often we lose our keys!” To be fair, it is pretty ridiculous how often we lose our keys…and phone, and wallets, and cars, and children, but still…geniuses

Yeah, that.

    Normal isn’t the right word – it’s average. No one is normal, but most people are average. And that’s boring.

    Anyway, I stole that normal-average thing from Utah Phillips, who tells a tale about it much better than I, on one of his collaborative albums with Ani DiFranco.

Got something to say?
