Masking, Identity and Understanding Yourself with Coach Bella Lalo

In this special episode recorded during Pride Month, we bring you a thought-provoking presentation titled "Masking, Identity, and Understanding Yourself." Originally recorded inside The Coaching Connection platform, this episode features Bella Lalo, an ADHD Coach and Entrepreneurship Consultant from Long Island, New York.

Bella's journey of self-discovery began when she was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 29, realizing how profoundly it impacted every aspect of her life. However, that was only the first layer she uncovered. Bella also came to understand her true gender identity as a transgender woman. With the support of her network of family, friends, coaches, and therapists, she found her calling in providing support to others in the ADHD and LGBT+ communities.

The challenge addressed in this episode is the struggle faced by individuals with ADHD in understanding their values, desires, and true selves. Often, in an attempt to fit into a world that may not always accommodate their needs, ADHDers resort to masking, adopting behaviors and identities from external sources, and losing themselves in the process. Bella shares her personal experience of peeling back these layers of ADHD masking, exploring how and why we don these masks, and guiding listeners on embracing their authentic selves.

Tune in to this enlightening episode to gain valuable insights into the complexities of ADHD and the journey of self-discovery. Join Bella Lalo as she empowers listeners to shed the masks they wear and find their true identity amidst the chaos, offering hope, understanding, and support for both the ADHD and LGBT+ communities. This episode is made possible by The Coaching Connection platform, where personal growth and transformation thrive.
