Being Yourself Is More Than Enough

Posted on June 16, 2018

"After years of feeling like I need to be better, stronger, healthier, and in control, I now know I am enough." -Member of MyAutismTeam

Parents on MyAutismTeam strive to do the best for their children. Sometimes we try to appear 'fine' to avoid the stigma of autism. Other times, we experience relief and support from other parents who've been in our shoes.

"I'm getting out of the rat race. I'm not hiding my struggles anymore. If I'm struggling, I'm going to reach out. Hearing from other autism parents has taught me that I have to prioritize ME." - Member of MyAutismTeam

Here are recent conversations from parents on MyAutismTeam:

Today has been great! It was frustrating because nothing went as planned, which is always challenging, but overall was really good.

For All Us Parents, We Are Strong And Stronger For Our Babies No Matter How Old They Get

My boy last day of Preschool. New IEP he will go to a more structured Preschool class.

Have you found yourself striving to appear as though you have it all together? Have you discovered ways to surround yourself with others who make you feel that you are more than enough?
