I have come to realise that not only did I miss out on my milestones growing up, because my learning wasn’t normal, milestones associated with adolescence, maturity and the emotions one associates with milestones, I also struggled to reach.
The bad part is that the part of my brain, which is damaged is the part that controls the emotions, everything from what I feel to what I think, to my understanding of what I feel. It is the emotions that are linked to the milestones we’re supposed to experience and those are what I missed out on.
The good part is that I have slowly learned to adapt, through my intuition and that has brought about new understanding on the issues I have to deal with. The hard part is other people’s understanding of how my emotions function and me having to live with their frustrations.
If I were to relive my life, I would still go on to miss out on all of my milestones and whilst I cannot get those back, I am comforted by the fact that I know I couldn’t have done anything differently, if I had my time again.
