I have always considered myself a loner, but after learning more about ADHD, I am beginning to wonder if that was just my excuse for not wanting to feel like a square peg trying to fit into the round hole. It was just pointed out to me that I am very comfortable in front of a crowd that I am a natural showman & that has served me well. It is being part of the crowd I have always been uncomfortable with. I have also begun to see some of my communication quirks that tent to make small talk rather difficult for me. I also have many acquaintances & few close friends. The realization for me is, that if I am to have those deep close friends, it will probably be up to me to get out of my comfort zone & seek them out and learn to just be that square peg, (it’s OK to be a square peg) Being different is not all bad or good, I believe what matters is how I present that difference to those around me. Many will appreciate it some wont, some may not even notice. The more I learn about this syndrome the more hope I have of becoming more comfortable being me, That is the best feeling in the world, the more I learn about communicating with those around me the more comfortable I become being around them, and so on.
