Chris Packham on living with Asperger’s: ‘I’ve spent 30 years on the telly trying my best to act normal’

Ah yes, the attempt to “act normal” (whatever “normal” is, but I imagine that it’s a lot more subjective than the world at large would like to admit 😉). I spent most of my life doing this, not realizing how much energy it took to do it. Forgetting, after a while, that I was even acting at all. In the process, neglecting my own development and my own inner core in favor of an Acceptable Me. Heh. That train has left the station, kind of. Maybe it’s in the process of leaving (?). Hindsight will be 20/20 😉 Anyway, this post is a *wonderful* read! Bravo 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼❤️
