ADHD in Adults: Understanding and Fighting Shame

Adults with ADHD are often confused as to why they constantly struggle at work and at home. Unremitting forgetfulness gnaws at them like a dripping faucet and brings with it an exponentially expanding sense of frustration that eventually leaves them feeling as though they were somehow broken.

Dismantling Failure

We all need some failure in our lives in order to grow, but failure quickly becomes a problem when it goes from a learning tool to a tyrannical autocrat. For many, failure has a tendency to quickly scribe an identity without giving a second glance. This persistent type of failure removes dignity and replaces it with shame. Fortunately the helping relationship has the power to speak into this kind of failure and renovate the damage that failure has brought to the soul.
The helping relationship hears, sees, and recognizes the pains behind failure that few others have ever been privy to. It hears the shame surrounding the gossip from peers back in grade school; it sees the self loathing that past financial mistakes have implanted; it recognizes the much needed, tightly withheld forgiveness from a selfish and manipulative parent. The helping relationship perceives the things that other relationships have completely missed. Truly this relationship keenly perceives the poison that failure imparts on its victims.

Fear of Death

Anyone who has ever experienced death, especially an unexpected death, knows how heavy loss can feel. More than just grieving, manifesting within someone can be an intense fear of death. Fear of death is a complex and extensive concern to carry, often taking years of work to progress. However, this doesn’t mean that you are powerless to help.

First, recognize that fear of death is significantly more likely to manifest in someone who has lost someone. This is something that they will not likely come forward about as it is an uncomfortable topic and no one likes reminding others of their own mortality. You will have to confront this within yourself somewhat before you take the initiative to bring up this topic to them.
