What is Perfection?

cah-13

Perfection is feeling relief, knowing there are things I can do to help you.

It’s putting a name to your struggles you’ve had for a long time, so you aren’t perceived by others as just being naughty or weird.

It’s reading a book, the author describing certain behaviors and realizing he has just exactly described you…and then reading how parents can help.

Perfection is having a friend like Suzanne to give advice, a friend like Megan to offer any and all resources and a friend like Tara to offer support.

Perfection is you – aspergers and all.

    How am I just now seeing this? Sitting at my desk with tears rolling down my cheeks. SOOOO glad you aren’t here because you’d be feeling all sorts of awkward. You know how we always make fun of clichés? Like, “God brings people into your life for a reason.” Normally you and I would make fun of that, but it really is true.

    This made me cry like you wouldn’t believe. Having my sister go through this is of the hardest things to watch…especially when she was younger and kids were so mean, I can’t even begin to explain the cruelty. I’m so happy knowing there are resources now and being able to read them myself… If this helps at all, it gets better. I know it’s different when you’re a mom as opposed to a sister but if this means anything, I’ve learned patience, I’ve learned yelling doesn’t help, I’ve learned social ques don’t make sense. I’ve learned that when people are mean or think she’s being rude, it’s because they don’t understand. I know my sister will never be overly affectionate or be able to voice how she feels the way everyone else can… And it breaks my heart to know she struggles. But, I’ve watched her grow strength that I don’t have, she’s made lifetime friends and is honestly the smartest person and someone who I turn to every day. Thank you for sharing this. He’s going to do amazing things with his life. ❤
