I Can't Stand Downloadable Guides: A Neurodivergent Tale

TRIGGER WARNING: Unpopular opinion

I can’t stand them but I’ll still download them. Every time I hope it’ll be something I can use but more often than not, it ends up in the void called My Inbox. Never to be opened again.

  1. I'll probably forget. Let's be real, I'm never gonna glance at it twice. Why, you ask? Well, I'll either blank on it entirely or lose it in my email. So, let's just call it a day.

  2. I'll have questions. Without fail, there's always something that leaves me puzzled, and I wish I could ask someone. But either I can't, or my attention span gets hijacked.  

  3. There's too much to read. It’s why I prefer paper books over e-books. My mind gets zonked after a paragraph or two and I just can’t stay focused. So I end up getting frustrated and close the file, never to be opened again.
