Anxiety, anger,  fear, and depression are often feelings every one of us has experienced at some point in our lives. But when you have been diagnosed with ADHD, those feelings happen more often than we want to admit. If your mood swings are making your life or other lives miserable, sooner or later it all ends in stress, and that my friend is never a good thing.  

The world is full of opinions and judgments, so much that it is often scary. It happens every day. And it's affecting so many people! 

Last night I felt my mood change in a negative direction all because of the opinion of others. Have you ever felt your emotions take control after reacting to something that made you upset? And how did you react? Did that change anything except your angry mood? Did you blame others? 

It does not matter what we believe is right or wrong, blame doesn't fix anything.  Neither does anger or starting a fight on or offline just because you don't like what's being said. 

Blaming others just because, doesn't help your life in any way. Sure, it might make you feel better knowing that you are right because you know you are, but again it doesn't help your life. 

And being angry doesn't help your life either. In fact, your anger may be the reason for your stress. So why are you still doing the things that raise your anxiety and make you angry? 

Instead, focus on:

  • Solutions to Managing Your Mood 

  • Being Productive 

  • Improving Your Health

  • Creating a Positive Mindset 

Your self-image can also be contagious in a sense. If you don't like the way you feel about yourself it can reflect in the way you treat others. 

Changing the way you see things rather than giving in to negative self-talk can make a huge difference when it comes to managing the mood swings caused by ADHD. 

All it takes is a positive mindset and seeing things from a different perspective. So if you are focusing on negative words, you will experience depression, anger, anxiety, stress, etc. If you change your focus and refuse to allow those negative thoughts to control who you are, all of those mood swings and bad feelings will change as well.  

There have been so many times in my life where I've faced moments of frustration and setbacks. Yet I prevailed because I changed my mindset and focused on the positive moments instead.  Of course, it wasn't something I achieved overnight! In fact, it's still a work-in -progress that I have carried over to every area in my life. 

Instead of dwelling on what life has thrown your way, focus on the good things, even if they are small. Of course, we are only human and when things get tough sometimes we can't always see the positive moments in our lives, but that's when you fight back and learn to change your perspective. 

Only you can change how you look at things! Sure, someone can hold your hand and cheer you on, but only you can change your perspective! 

It does you no good to dwell and worry over something that is beyond your control. The only thing worrying does is cause unnecessary stress. 

If you want to change your perspective in life, you must be willing to become the person who is already there! You have to pretend like you are already one step ahead of your mood swings and  ADHD. 

Be the version of you who is in control of your ADHD symptoms and you will prevail.

Sometimes when we think what we have gone through in life we get broken down. That's why we need a better perspective view about life
