One of the biggest hurdles to overcome in spreading Autism and Special Needs Parenting Awareness is judgement. I think everyone can be guilty of issuing judgment, including myself. It’s something that is easy to do and much harder to reserve.
There have been plenty of times that I’ve found myself issuing judgment. When I realize this, I remind myself of the plethora of reasons I don’t want to do that, the biggest of which is that I know what it feels like to be on the receiving end of judgment. It’s not fun and it doesn’t feel good.
We need to work really hard and lead by example as much as possible. Not only are we educating the world with our words but our actions as well. We can’t very well expect the world to do something for us that we are willing to do for them.

I have to tell myself it seems a million times a day that it is not all about me. people have things going on that i dont know about and are none of my business and that their hardship may cause their attitude to fall on me some. Of course my sick son has had to be the one to teach me this LOL. It first started when I was fussing/judging about someone and he said “Mama, did you think for a minute that they may have a kid that had leukemia and a bone marrow transplant and survived and now has an autoimmune diesease with no answers and doctors, people, etc., that are seeming to make their life hell” Of course that is what I think of now. why did he have to spell that out for me.
Judging others is a hard thing to break or catch yourself before you say something. With me being on the spectrum and also a Christian, I am also human and I have a hard time overcome judging other people.
