I love beautiful stories, and always feel the need to share when they come across my news feed.
A parent is awakened by the wise words of an Aspie.
“Why can’t you just accept us the way we are? We are not trying to talk you into thinking like us. Or seeing the world like we do. We are not saying your way of thinking and acting is bad. We accept you. So tell me, why can’t you just accept us?”
Perhaps, it is not the “Aspies” who need the healing. Perhaps our children with the autistic label are really here to teach us to stop trying to change people and to just love them.
