Aspies, want to give yourself a Christmas break? How about forgetting that you’re not socially astute and just spend the day being yourself? Relax into who you are, and listen, really listen when others communicate with you.
So what if you aren’t perfect? Neither is anyone else in the room!
Here are some words of wisdom sent to me by a friend who follows this post:
Wearing a mask wears you out.
Faking it is fatiguing.
The most arduous activity is pretending to be what, or who you know you aren’t.
Trying to fit some idealistic mould of perfection is a fool’s game.
It is much wiser to simply be yourself – faults and all!
Take off your mask and begin to be unapologetic about who you really are.
Remember, imperfection is beauty; madness is genius.
It is far better to be ridiculous you,
than ridiculously boring
by trying to be the same as everyone else.
