EP. 158: ADHD and Women: Speak Your Mind, Embrace Your Too-Muchness and Make Some Noise with Andrea Owen

Listen to this episode from ADHD for Smart Ass Women with Tracy Otsuka on Spotify. Many ADHD women are known for being bold, outspoken, and strong-willed, but in a society where those attributes are often reserved for men it can leave us feeling like we’re “too much.”

Many ADHD women are known for being bold, outspoken, and strong-willed, but in a society where those attributes are often reserved for men it can leave us feeling like we’re “too much.” My guest this episode, author Andrea Owen, used to let this fear of taking up space prevent her from letting her stand out. In her mid-30s when she started to embrace her “too-muchness” she realized just how much she had been diminishing herself for the comfort of others.

Since then, Andrea has taught hundreds of thousands of women tools and strategies to empower themselves and live their most kick-ass life. Her most recent book, Make Some Noise: Speak Your Mind and Own Your Strength, felt like I was reading something I myself had written; the things Andrea struggled with are exactly the things that I and many ADHDers struggle with as well. Join us for an insightful conversation where we discuss the impact people-pleasing has on ADHD women, the importance of taking up space with our emotions and voice, how to have compassion for ourselves, and more.
