Strength in pain

Brilliant post! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼.  The last sentence drives it home – “If we did not reach for the stars, if we did not look for the unseen or for the beauty in the people around us and appreciate what we have then we are no better than the beast of the field.” – yes, yes, and more Yes!! 💗💗

The Secret Aspie

Accepting pain from past relationships or the one you are in now is not something anyone enjoys but it is being able to process that pain. Why we feel that pain that is our strength. It is also the realisation that we all have the capacity to be good or bad. That every  choice we make when it comes to our connections with others has consequences. We are very much ruled by our emotions, our connections with the people around us. 

A single sentence can change someone’s life forever or remind them that there is more to us than the mundane. 

If we did not reach for the stars, if we did not look for the unseen or for the beauty in the people around us and appreciate what we have then we are no better than the beast of the field.

Guess what?

Yep!  This is very similar to how I felt when I got my diagnosis, too!  Great post; you can feel the light, bouncy vibe in the writing 😁❤️❤️

35 years old and finally understanding.

I’m only friggin autistic!! Whoop!! Formally known as Aspergers.

I knew it, have done since the realisation truck hit me late last year.

I’ve finally found my tribe!!!!

Since leaving the diagnostic centre I have felt awash with a wave of calm. My shoulders sure feel lighter too!

Now comes the tricky stage – self-acceptance. My default has always been one of self-critique and loathing. Always setting unrealistic and unobtainable goals.

I don’t know what to do with regards to my mindset of my life being one based on imposter theory.

What I need, and could do with, is a month or two off work, so as I can process everything, to readjust and realign.

I’m currently attending Autscape and it’s now the early hours of the morning. What am incredibly liberating, and exciting introduction to the autism community. I’m loving it. Everyone’s just like me, or should I say…
