Disrespecting your parents.
Been there, done that, regretted most of it.
If my mother had known of my disability when I was a child I have a feeling we could have avoided a lot of the struggles. But I also am thankful for going under the radar for so long, because I got to avoid the horror that is ABA and other ‘therapies’ currently used on autistic kids that exploit them and force them into mindless parrots of ‘acceptable’ human behavior.
I regret hurting their feelings at times, but mostly I’ve moved on. It’s important not to dwell on things. I love my parents despite their faults. I just wish it was more socially acceptable not to be unconditionally in total agreement.
This topic was difficult to write about. I’ll stop before it gets too detailed.
