Ditch Negative Groups
Feeling drained and demoralized by a negative group? Get out!
Don’t stay too long where you aren’t understood or appreciated.
Just as people with ADD gain a great deal from supportive groups, they are particularly drained and demoralized by negative groups, and they have a tendency to stay with them too long, vainly trying to make things work out, even when all the evidence shows they can’t.
