When we are working towards the goals of Potty Training or Communicating and we don’t have it yet, we often ask ourselves why it’s not happening.
We think it isn’t working. Because it hasn’t worked YET.
We start troubleshooting.
Why we start wondering what the problem is.
What if we start feeling down about it not working.
If we start blaming AUTISM as a reason it can’t be done.
We start feeling like it’s all pointless. Why bother?
I start to give up. A little here and a little there. We lose motivation.
But we do something else instead.
It keeps not working. It does not work… even more.
Then we feel desperate.
But all that has happened is that we underestimated the time and effort it would take.
So Didn’t keep working when it was working.
I think we started “not working”.
And we didn’t stay working – no matter what.
Didn’t learn the actual amount of effort it takes.
Now we will never know. 🙁
Unless we pick working back up. And decide it works. Until it does.
That is when we will know. Exactly how much effort it took, to make it work.
