One of the things I love about AspiesCentral is that it is a very welcoming, accepting place. That is not a common thing on the web. (I could comment further on that, and once upon a time I probably would have spent a few thousand words expounding on the subject, but that time is no longer.) I loved that NTs could find their place here as well as Aspies & Auties.
I haven't been all that active here lately. There was a phase in my life where identifying with the spectrum explained an awful lot about me. I know people to whom I'm related who are very spectrummy. But I have reached the conclusion--I am not one of them.
What I perceived, at the time, as spectrumness, is likely better explained by another quality--I am clairsentient, clairaudient, and claircognizant. And I have a feeling that there are many who participate here who share these characteristics.
So... Nonetheless, I still relate to a lot of the experiences I read about here. It took me a long time to learn how to socialize, and that's still an interesting, evolving journey. I love indulging in my unusually specific, obscure, and deep interests. And, like Ray Davies sang, I'm not like everybody else.
Most importantly, and this is where I'll leave off--I love myself exactly as I am. And I've learned that doing so is the foundation of a good life. There is nothing wrong. I am always on my path. I am always capable of enjoying the contrast of living here in the physical realm. I enjoy the evolution of my desire, my preferences.
Love yourself! You're all perfect just as you are. Anyone who suggests otherwise is wrong. Be your wonderfully unique selves!
Namaste, Shalom, Cheers, and Have a Slice!
