Driving lesson or therapy?!

Sign in to follow this  


Just had my last lesson for this week. I ended up crying again at the end. I'm not going to focus on the negative parts, but instead he said that the first minutes were perfect. He told me that this should be prove for myself that I can do it. Then he told me about his struggle with learning to do some sort of car racing. He took my hand and walked with me to his other garage and opened the door. There was his race car in it and all the medals he won. He said that they all laughed at him because he did so bad at the beginning (as a driving instructor) and that he was not talented at all and needed lots of practice to get to this point were he is now.

So the one thing I try to remember from today is that I drove perfect (his words) during the beginning. 

(And if one person tells me that Autistic people have no emotions I would like to refer them to my poor instructor who has to deal with a crying student more than he probably likes.)

      Of course, Lori’s first reaction is “I prayed for this every day.”  Yeah, Lori, this is all about you. You and your super special prayers. :pb_rollseyes:

      I’ll continue to be happy for Alyssa and her husband. Even people who have views with which I disagree deserve to be able to experience the joy of having a family. I desperately hope that Alyssa chooses a different path than her mother when it comes to child rearing, and I suspect she will. Many people grew up in fundamentalist households and turn out to be awesome, open-minded, loving people, and I hope the same for this little one as well.

      I use both the preferred Nationalist and Unionist name at the same time, it would be quicker to use map coordinates lol

      I do that too when I have to say where exactly I’m from. But as far as randomers asking? I’ve been from anywhere from Strabane to Coleraine to Dungiven 😂

      Some people in Africa use Christianity and witchcraft as a way to control members from a community. They are usually banned from their village. Some so called pastures will cleansed of their “demons” for the right price. These so called witches are social stigmas. They are blamed for anything and everything that goes wrong in the community.  Many children are targeted.
