Trying to talk to my oldest is always an ordeal. I really should just leave it to the Bear to do. Problem is the Bear doesn’t understand everything I ‘see’ in a situation and trying to get all the information across can sometimes be a challenge.
Then again, now that I think on it, it might just be best that way! I think my issue is that I don’t like having to ask Him over and over again to take these things on. I’m not sure why that is, I feel like I’m putting Him out or asking too much I suppose. I know He doesn’t feel that way, now, but old habits die hard I guess.
I’m so used to always having to be the one to do things I don’t feel comfortable having to ask, especially when it’s a repeated request. I still have some growing to do I guess, get over my worry of being a burden. OYE!
Well, that’s not where I wanted to go with this post, but that’s where it went! Welcome to my brain …. *chuckle*
Anyway, I wanted to ask/tell my oldest to stop joking with the youngest about being autistic because there is a good chance he has Asperger’s and I would like to desensitize the idea so that we can ask him if he would like to get tested. That sounds awful but it’s not like that, truly. There is no making fun of people with disabilities I assure you, it’s just an easy way to add humour to things that go on around here. Obviously the signs are clear. BTW I don’t consider Asperger’s a disability, just saying!
So I think we have come to an understanding BUT it was at the expense of an argument, as usual. I like to micro focus on the point at hand and he likes to discuss endlessly the other ideas and possibilities. I say I have already thought them all through before starting to talk and he says ‘of course, because you know it all’. UGH!
Perhaps if he decides to look into the information he will start to understand how my brain works too! I have learned and evolved in how to interact with people but when it comes to serious discussions, I can’t help how my brain works!
Well, this post is a mess! *chuckle*
