Having missed out on my developmental stages that other children reach without a disability, it is only now that I have come to understand why.
Being ignorant because we don’t understand something is acceptable because we don’t know any better, but being ignorant because we don’t want to know, is not. Not taking the time to help me work through my disability and help me emotionally is something I cannot comprehend. I can’t believe questions were never asked as to why my development was delayed, or why I struggled.
It’s something I find difficult to comprehend. I’m not sure it’s something I’ll ever come to terms with and being a parent myself, it makes that notion even more difficult.
