When Life Gets Hard

"I feel like I am hitting my head against a brick wall". I have heard it many times. I have said it many times. In the Autism journey you can feel like you have not only hit your head into that proverbial wall, but like you have been knocked out more than once.

My advice to you is stop. Stop banging your head for just one minute.

Pull your head away from the wall.

Open your eyes.

Look to your left. Look to your right.

Every wall has a door. Find that door and open it. There's no reason to continue hitting your head when you can turn a door knob and leave that entire room.

We have done this many times. It wasn't until I stopped banging that I found the door to open. It wasn't until I stopped the senseless acts that were causing me so much frustration that I could find the door. It wasn't until I gave it to God through prayer that He gave me enough to strength to stand up and find an exit.

I spoke to my husband who knew someone who was just banging away and banging hard. I told him to tell them this advice. Just stop the ramming and start looking for that door. It's there, find it and see what's on the other side.
