Do you see the world through different colored glasses

i have a child with delays
i was in politics section on here this am
(remind me to stay out of there-lol)
a women wrote.... women and small bus, then posted her comment
i took it as women who ride small bus are therefore mentally delayed

she was just shortening business
but small bus - meant small bus to me, and i took as tongue in cheek slam on others that thought different, would be riding a short bus because of lack of brain function
she did not mean this at all - (sorry grlygrly mom)

do you see the world differently than others because of past present happenings in your life? if i did not have a child who rode the small bus, i never would have jumped to this conclusion

i am now seeing the world through delayed colored glasses
do you have colored glasses on? what color do you see the world and why

  • @OP--My DH would have seen the very same thing you saw! To him, 'short bus' means.....mentally challenged.
    I think with certain things in my life I see things through different colored glasses than others around me. I've lived for 17yrs with severe chronic pain on a daily basis so...everything to me is somehow related to that. Why I do things the way I do, why I make decisions I make etc but to look at me....people do not SEE my pain (going on inside my body) so, they seem puzzled by me alot. They cannot understand why I'm not out shopping and running all around enjoying things for example. I think they think I purposely limit myself. However, if I had ,say, a limp or arm missing or something....they would not question because they then could SEE something wrong with me with their own eyes. I'm not sure if this is what you meant but, it's the closest I could come with my own experiences.

  • thanks maxs mom, i am no dofferent than another mom, just see things differently now, given what life's dice rolled for me
    and kellygirl-yes i mean just something like this

    if you were cheated on - do you expect cheating from the next
    if you had a bad experience with police, then you see police force in this light
    if you were unjustly accusted by CPS, you have an opinion on CPS that will last forever
    if you have a parent who abused you, it colors your view of life always
    if you had a close call with drowning, you see water play/fun as dangerous

    could be anything
    we all have had experiences that color our world differently

    if my child did not have autism, i would not have seen the short cut of bus as anything but short for business

    i laugh at myself with the politics question & my comment on that womens words
    i took, wrong, she explained , i apologized, and i left my comment up
    laugh at t

  • i have a chip?
    please elaborate for me

    i do have chip on shoulder given to me from the ex, who had a secret life he kept from me
    but do not see how this has any barring on my post/question

    please explain, not getting your point
    and i do not have much opinion on my relirgion or others, i stay out of the religion section - i think to each her own on beliefs of faith

  • and i did not vote you down
    do not seethe point in that stuff
    just so you know

    but would like to know your reasons for your slams on me
    not that you know anything about me
    except the fact that i make lots of typos -lol
    what do you think you know about me?
    aside from the ex coming out of secret closet - i do own that chip-people who make commitments should not have secret lives- in my opinion
