@toofat…. I’m not implying that one cannot have special gifts and talents. And I do not encourage one to think of himself as average. In fact, I do not encourage one to try and rank themselves among others at all!! I do , however, believe that a preoccupation of self, whether too much or too little, is not healthy!

Why you say? For me, this is what causes a lot of my social problems. I’m so preoccupied with myself and my thoughts that I miss cues, messages and sometimes direct communication from others. Not all, but for some ADDers, this is what gives us that aloof look.

Although, I’m not trying to be selfish, if I don’t constantly make myself aware of the fact I’m preoccupied with myself and my thoughts, then that’s what I am.

So even with my special talents, I am just like everyone else. I want love, friendship, stability, a meaningful career centered around my gifts and passion and to be accepted the way I am.
