From the chair – One of my current favored books has a curious title, “Seeing What Others Cannot See.” It makes a great case for why people with ADD/ADHD and other forms of differently wired brains are, in many cases, actually gifted with a blessing often mislabeled as a liability. If you or someone in your family thinks a bit differently and routinely finds themselves on the road less traveled – read it – you will understand that unique is not bad unless we make it so.
I received a card today from someone who believes they are seeing what others cannot see. Sorry, but their diatribe doesn’t qualify as unique, gifted or blessed. They are just simply angry – and evidently a little blinded on the reality that anger makes us all fools.
No need to belabor the point – it surrounds us in a million ways.
Those looking for an antidote can reference the Bible for a perfect one – “Don’t let the sun set on your anger.” That means forgiveness – every day – is the best way to keep your brain grounded in reality versus – well – other stuff…
