Inclusion

We have a logical thought process but live in an illogical world. Sensory sensitivities in a world full of sensory impact. Use more of a bullet point style of communication, clear and precise, in a world where information isn’t given in that way. We can be kept at arms distance by society but told we are cold and lack personal relationships. Are direct, often open and honest but told we have communication difficulty. Taught in a way that is different to how our minds process information but told we have a cognitive disorder. That’s why so many autistic adults become advocates. The next generation doesn’t need to be defined by perceptions, but understood for the truth of who we are. Given a chance in life as much as everyone else, a chance at hope and to think “I like me, I am proud of who I am”. I bet you if you ask any autistic person that doesn’t mask what words went through their minds the most in their life. I’d bet they were “what is wrong with me” I know they definitely were with me, thousands of times. But the answer is nothing, however there is a lot wrong with trying to force someone to be something or someone they are not. Society does that to autistic people every single day... That’s where the problem lies. I didn’t want my voice heard, there are so many people trying to do that to help the community. I just knew if I shared my story, it would help show why you should listen to them. As many as possible, because my life should be a warning of what not having understanding can lead to.
