Here's the Latest Episode from Journey With Me Through ADHD: A Podcast for Kids:
Do you feel easily rejected by a friend, family member, or even someone you just met and want to become friends with? Does that feeling of rejection feed into obsessive negative thinking that causes beliefs that often have no evidence of being true? Those of us with ADHD often struggle with something called, "Rejection Sensitivity Dysphoria!" This is a common struggle that kids with ADHD have and it ties into our deep seeded emotions, but you're not alone and steps can be taken to shorten the life of that feeling of rejection. This episode shares personal experience, and gives three questions to ask yourself when you find yourself feeling this way!
1. What is the meaning behind the feeling of rejection?
2. What is my body doing when I feel this way?
3. How can I learn and grow from this feeling of rejection?
Lay a strong "growth mindset" foundation so other tools and strategies will work, feeling less rejection and more confidence in who you are!
