autistic-positivity:

i saw a (well-intentioned) image that mentioned not complaining if you “let” things happen to you but instead taking the initiative to make change and that’s great advice for some people but for others not so much

sometimes i “let” things happen because i am disabled and too tired, too overwhelmed, in too much pain, too scared, too slow, or too traumatized to do anything else

there are lots of other reasons why disabled people will “let” things happen and that is okay! that’s part of being disabled and we still deserve to complain because we have a right to express our frustrations and sadnesses and discomforts when this happens

we also still deserve support and understanding! it isn’t our fault and we should never feel ashamed or guilty ✿
