Rejection sensitive dysphoria (RSD) is extreme emotional sensitivity and pain triggered by the perception that a person has been rejected or criticized by important people in their life. It may also be triggered by a sense of falling short—failing to meet their own high standards or others’ expectations.
People with ADHD cope in two main ways:
1. They become people pleasers.
2. They stop trying.
Neither of these are healthy, so I want to give you six quick reminders for your Friday if you struggle with RSD as I do.
