Obstacles

 

When I worked as the Hale County Literacy Council leader, one of the obstacles that non-English speakers and writers had was filling out forms, I understood their pain. Forms come in many sizes and shapes. Some are over the line, and some are under. There is never enough space for those who tend to write largely. One form wants this first, and another form has it somewhere else. There is not a standard form for anything. It is frustrating. Surveys, the same.

Being wired with Aspergers, forms are not my friends. They are obstacles. I know the language, and I can write, but I tend to close down inside when I look at a form; they are a huge overstimulation. Let's just say I never pass the "form filler outer" test with a 100. You'll get the must-have information, but you may need to fill in a few blanks for me. LOL

So all of this to say, be kind. We don't know what others are going through. If they seem distant, try to see what they are facing. When we get to the Pearly Gates, and there is a form to fill out upon entry, and someone can't read it, or write it or understand it, or is fearful of it, will we be willing to give up our place in line to stay and help? Something to think about. When we all get to Heaven ...
