Wonderfully Made

Shame is healthy when I know
That I am doing bad
But how I was made is not wrong
And for that I am glad

Autistic is as it always was
A part of what I call me
How could I be someone else
Who else could I be

There are choices that I make
Each and every day
My choices make my life what it is
And Im glad that its this way

People are often uncomfortable with difference
And I may never know what they expect
But I learning how to celebrate how Im different
And what has value and deserves respect

People will eventally learn
Why diversity is good
Until then Ill be just who I am
And do what I think I should

I'm one of those people that has taken a long time to realise that diversity is 'good.' I suspect that there are a lot of people with similarly narrow views, but I think [now] that they stem from 'fear of the unfamiliar.' Depends what kind of a risk taker you are, and I always preferred 'safe and predictable.'
Just as well my little guys came along when they did to save me from terminal predictability and middle age!
Cheers

Mcewen,
You....afraid? Call it rhino hide or whatever....somewhere along the line you learned the value in taking risks. There is alot of wisdom in doing that.Sometimes I wish I had more courage to say what I feel I should. You seem to speak up alot.
Maybe its the parenting thats teaching you but you are teaching me too!

I like this a lot. I will save it and read it to my son when he's older.

What you say is so true;
'Who else could I be?'

As I'm getting to know you a little through your blog, I'm glad you are Ed :-)
