Don't judge!!!

Well, where do I start? I just can't beleive that after all this time I had to hear a rude comment about my son. It especially hurt because it was from someone close to us. It happend yesterday, out in public, at a restraunt. And it totally shocked me because at the time he wasn't doing anything out of the ordinary. Then again what is ordinary? It was to me because thats what I know. I don't have anything to compare him to. And I don't want to anyway. I decided a long time ago not to let his behavior or actions keep me prisoner and worry about what others thought. If  they didn't like it don't look and if they didn't want to be friendly sobeit. I didn't need them in our life. As long as he wasn't hurting himself or someone else then mind your own bussiness. But it was different this time because the person was someone who was supposed to love him unconditionally. Still contemplating if I wil approach this person or just let it go.


  1. Hugs!

    I have been in your situation several times. One family member told me "that if I showed her more affection, more love, she would be fine." Another was recent "I need to teach my kids to be less needy." And this was at a out of state wedding, staying in a hotel, hello anxiety?

    I hold grudges, more with family. I still havent spoken to the second family member, I will, when Im ready. The first family, I didnt speak to them for a year, and they read my blog that Autism Speaks posted and they emailed me and apologized.

    Life is short, choose your battles. My kids will always go first,if they wont be accepted or loved by someone, theres the door.

  2. I'm sorry. It's always harder for me when it's a close friend or family too. We have family who genuinely believe that our HFA child is just spoiled and babied too much. Hmm. It that were the case, I could fix it easily!
