Yes, I often wonder why can’t I just be like everyone else. My ideas are always different than others (which at times is a good thing at work), but I also put my foot in my mouth almost daily. I had a bit of a promotion at work, but lost it. I have given up on being in a leadership possition. I think it is just part of the ADD. If only people could see the vision in my head. The good thing is I like my job and will continue to focus on doing my best. (As an aside, I am 55 so being content where I am is easier than if I were 25) I would highly recomend the article on Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria. It has really helped my understand how I realate to people at work, and to alough myself some grace when I feel rejected.
