    We Are Not All Going To Like Each Other Anyway.

    As  those closest to me know, I have Asperger, as do three of my children.  It makes me a little quirky, and yes a bit weird.  Okay I can be blunt, tactless and my sense of humour is never aligned with anyone else’s. But I really have grown to love myself...

    You Don't Fight Monsters By Becoming One.

    Honest To A Fault

    I have a little problem...okay, maybe it's a big problem. I am a southern belle but dammit if I don't speak my mind! My brother has told me I lacked tact but I prefer not to sugarcoat crap and try to convince you it's candy. Hell..if that were the case, I'd run for office! lol...

    Accept Me As I Am; Never Mistake Me For Whom You'd Like Me To Be

    I've grown up under pressure to fit a mold of the way my family has wanted me to be. I'm sure this is quite normal; however in my context, it couldn't be further from it.  They live a lie; they project themselves as enlightened and accepting individuals with 24/7/365 happiness...

    but sometimes I think it would be nice to be someone else. I'm tiered of feeling insecure and second guessing, I'm fed up of being misunderstood.

    Even though the truths about ourselves are not

    pleasing, it is better to stay real than to fake ourselves by hiding behind the shadows of others. A bitter truth is way better than a sweet lie.

    It took me awhile to come to this conclusion,

    but I realized that when you are yourself you get the friends that will love you as you are and not for the mask you put on. Makes for much more meaningful interactions.
