The Importance of Language — Why Words Matter
Thank you for supporting The ADHD Podcast on Patreon! — https://patreon.com/theadhdpodcast
Words are important. Since our conversation with James Ochoa and our efforts to change our language around the words manage versus navigate, we’ve heard from many listeners who are trying to change their language, too. This week, we’re taking on so-called “binary language,” conditions we set for ourselves in which there are only two conditions; good or bad, sick or healthy, smart or dumb, organized or not. When you shine a light on this kind of language, it sounds ridiculous, but how often do we let these terms creep into our lives subconsciously?
