Happy Easter/ Passover !
Do you celebrate Easter or Passover? If so, which one?
I celebrate Easter! But, without the sweets, alcohol, spices, food intolerances, and gluten. Unlike most of my family. My family celebrates mostly with all the above. Why I won’t say, to copy me (Even if that’s the smartest thing to do, I’m sure some of you might laugh if I did). I will say, keep in mind your health, sensory needs, addiction factors, routines, and how those things will effect you both short and long term. Not just how they effect you. But, how your actions, delivery of actions, and the lack of them. How they effect, or may influence other’s as well. Even if it isn’t always obvious, when someone else notices them and let’s your actions change theirs. (Children are very easily influenced.) But, so are some adults with certain disabilities as well. Like some with ASD.
But, if your an adult. Most of all. Don’t get unwound from alcohol. That’s key no matter what extra differences you have, true. But, those who celebrate with you should appreciate you for you. And not for what alcohol makes you become. ( Same is true for any other toxin that may just be one for you and not them) If this isn’t true, there toxic. And you need, an untoxic family or group of close friends to celebrate with. If you celebrate at all.
If you need to/ should stay sober, in routine, and avoid what’s toxic, DO SO. Stay strong. And please know. You are SO not alone. But, do it tactfully.
