I am accessing Equine Assisted Therapy with Counsellor Andrew to help me work through experiences that have impacted on my ability to trust and connect with others.
It’s really important that young autistics develop the skills to identify red flags in friendships early on.
We are often taken advantage of because of our trusting nature ,wanting to please and belong.
Many of us are so desperate to make friends, that we often find ourselves in friendships with others who do not value us or our friendship as much as we do.
It’s also important to identify green flags in friendships early on.
So we are able to make friends with those who do value us, bring us joy and promote safe and healthy boundaries.
