Shattering the Illusion: Embracing the World of Neurodivergence

If you’re colorblind, can someone who sees color accurately explain the shades of the rainbow to you? If you’re deaf, will focusing more enable you to hear the birds singing? This disconnect perfectly captures the nuances of being neurodivergent in a neurotypical world.

Take my high school self for instance, before I knew I needed glasses. Like any budding artist, I was thrilled when others noticed my unique painting style—blurred backgrounds and objects fading beyond the focal point. It wasn’t intentional, though. This was my vision dictating my brush strokes, not artistic genius.

The reality of neurodivergence is just as obscure, shaped by perceptions as individual as fingerprints. When a friend suggested more organization would resolve my troubles, I couldn’t help but smile. She likened it to a matter of discipline, dismissing the role of my neurodivergence. Yet her understanding of ‘overwhelm’ or ‘distraction’ mirrored a deaf person’s perception of noise.

Think of Superman’s super-hearing going haywire or telepathy suddenly amplifying everyone’s thoughts. That’s a snapshot of neurodivergence. If you haven’t experienced it, understanding it might be as elusive as a color to the colorblind.

Neurodivergence doesn’t come with a universal manual, either. ADHD, multipotentialism, and other forms manifest uniquely. Sometimes, my ADHD triggers a hyperfocus; other times, I lose track of time entirely. It’s akin to a symphony of devices blasting different tunes, with me as the sole audience.

In a world where neurotypical is the norm, neurodivergent individuals bear an often unacknowledged burden of empathy. We’re nudged to be understanding when well-intentioned advice ends up futile, or worse, detrimental. We’re urged to summon ‘more discipline or self-control,’ as if control isn’t perpetually slipping through our fingers.

The day I took my ADHD medication for the first time was an eye-opener. The world snapped into sharp focus, reminiscent of the day I first donned glasses in art class. I realized that my unique painting style was, in fact, a byproduct of my nearsightedness.

Here’s the silver lining: navigating life with a neurodivergent mind for forty years has equipped me with coping strategies that work. And now, I’ve channeled these experiences into a system that I’m eager to share through a specially-curated workshop.

Whether you’re neurodivergent or neurotypical, this system holds value. The chaos of having every device on full volume while struggling to listen to a soft-spoken conversation will no longer be your reality.

Sharing this system isn’t a light-hearted endeavor—it invites judgment and misunderstanding. Yet, I believe in breaking the silence. I’ve curated an outline of my system, which you can access here. This system is a treasure trove of resources that I wish were at my disposal earlier in my life.

Should enough people find it beneficial, I plan to host a workshop to delve deeper. Regardless, I’m compelled to share. We’ve all been on the receiving end of advice that, despite its goodwill, is counterproductive or even damaging.

Through this system, I hope to offer practical advice infused with empathy. Remember, navigating the labyrinth of neurodivergence needn’t be a solitary journey. Together, we can unravel its complexities and chart a path to success. Welcome to a paradigm shift in understanding our friends, family, and ourselves better. Embrace the unseen world of neurodivergence.
