Possibilities/Probabilities

Creativity and autism seem to go hand in hand. I think it’s got a lot to do with the way we think. As far as I can tell non autistic people seem to think more in probabilities. While I definitely think in possibilities, so regardless if it’s likely it’s possible. That can be really good, my hope to fill the void in media for example. However when a negative possibility is an option is hard not to worry about that. For example when the news of Covid come out I struggled for about 8 months. My mind kept replaying the information over and over. Playing out every possible outcome, and it can feel real. When I get new information my brain processes it. Categorises it and connects that thought to every image I’d seen, article I had read and film I’d seen. Basically I was replaying scenarios in my mind in which the outcome was I lose everyone I love. I have to avoid negative outcomes, or at least try and make myself as unaware as I can. I stay away from the news, certain movies, a newspaper and so on. I don’t want to know how bad the world is today. I think that’s why I focus on what tomorrow could be. Because I see a world that is going down a path we can’t come back from. People are complex, and interesting and different. We all have strengths that when brought together could make for a pretty amazing world. I have read countless stories about history, about the cost of when we apposed each other. Very rarely have I read about when we all accepted each other. View difference as a just a brushstroke in the painting of life. Wouldn’t that be an incredible gift to leave future generations. True acceptance the world over.
