Hi guys, something I read yesterday in an information booklet for parents with Autistic spectrum or related conditions, that gave me a different way to look at not only my sons condition but finally be at peace with how our life is unique and special...I wanted to share with anyone who is finding this hard, hope it helps you as it has helped me:) " I thought I was going ot Paris. All my friends were going to Paris and I thought thats were I was going too...But I suddenly found I wasn't in Paris, I was in Amsterdam....I didn't want to go to Amsterdam. That wasn't were I set out to go...But now that I'm in Amsterdam and I'm looking around and Amsterdam is different to Paris...But actually its quite beautiful in it's own right...And why that was very powerful for me was because I stopped comparing...It was about stopping yourself from thinking you wanted to be in Paris and starting to look at Amsterdam and to think about what you can do there". Another short part I totally agree with: "You'll meet people in your life now that you never have met if you weren't setting out on this journey. You will meet the most genuine, the most kind, the most imaginative people, and if you weren't entering into this world, you would never had the opportunity to do that"!... I know through my son I have grown to be more tolerant, more patient, my thoughts about what is really important in life has changed, he has made me more giving and being grateful for every little blessing that comes my way...OVERALL HE HAS MADE ME A BETTER PERSON:)!
