With humility, I can say that I’ve never felt so reassured by my feeling ‘at odds’ with Society at large and even smaller communities. Self-serving opportunism is now epidemic with little evidence of learning from having observed how this has developed and what it has developed into, in recent decades.
It may not bring me friends or riches but I’m pleased to remain my autistic – not stupid – self, and recognise that my Aspergers gives me the focus on what actually matters in my life. I’m not wasting any more of it trying to make sense of senseless man-made constructs and skewed judgements when all I need to find contentment is already within me.
The few friends I have are quality friends. The little I have is meaningful to me. I’m not chasing any rainbows. I have a life to live.
