Reach Out!!… And Be Ready to Receive!
FROM JEANNIE: Hey Everybody….what do you think of this idea? If you are posting stories about your life and your autism experience, please keep posting!!! And if you are not or only a little bit, try posting or consider posting more!!!
WHY? BECAUSE IT’S USEFUL!! It’s a great support for the person who is posting/receiving responses, and it’s also a beautiful OPPORTUNITY for others to “be there” with you.
Some of the absolute worst times for me dealing with my son’s autism were directly tied to being not just alone, but from being ISOLATED. However, many of the best times were connected to…..well, BEING CONNECTED!!
When I attended Radical Authenticity almost 2 yrs ago, “someone”(named Stelios!) twisted my arm into agreeing to get on something called “Facebook“…. and at the time I had NO IDEA what this was. NOW I am thrilled at how this is such an easy and effective tool for those of us in the Autism and Son-Rise communities to stay in touch and support each other. And if you notice, often when people post personal items about their challenges, successes, process, photos…..often lots of people respond…or at least some people!!! IS THIS SUPER AWESOME OR WHAT?!!!
TOGETHER WE ARE STRONGER AND CAN DO MORE.
So, BE OPEN... AND BE READY TO RECEIVE…AND YOU MIGHT JUST BE ABSOLUTELY AMAZED AT WHAT COMES BACK!!
