End the Cycle of Giving Too Much, People Pleasing and Takers in Friendship – 2023

with Caroline Maguire, M. ED, ACCG, PCC


As a woman with ADHD, many of us are conditioned to believe that friendship struggles and social challenges are our fault. This experience is not without merit. It’s true that you may have struggled most of your life to make, and keep, good friends. Whether it’s out of fear of losing someone, or because you so deeply want to be accepted that many ADHD women struggle with codependency, over-giving, unrealistic relationship expectations and feeling like you have to change your very self to be liked and loved. In this session you will take a look at the patterns and beliefs you have grown used to after years of living with ADHD, likely undiagnosed and over-doing and overcompensating to make and keep friends. That can end now. And I’ll show you how it’s done.
