    Interesting read on Empathy

    It might help to know that there are essentially two types of empathy. One being cognitive and the other being affective empathy. Autistics apparently have trouble with one kind, and are a lot better at the other (I forget which, but I'm pretty sure we're better at Affective Empathy)...

    The Buddy Bench

    Sorry to hear you two had bad experiences with bullies. I had wondered whether such a problem might arise with the buddy bench, admittedly, but as this place is a tight-knit community and a safe space with mods and admin watching over us, I feel it could work.

    Hey Bolletje, nice to meet you :) My day has been good, I'm pretty happy with how the buddy bench is going so far. Painting is cool, what have you been painting? I also have a cat, though he's pretty old now.
