Why Hate Difference?

This is a question Ive spent alot of time exploring. I wont say that it hasnt been more difficult to understand such things when I was really hurt. However, my experience has taught me alot about this since when I began exploring the subject (which BTW must have been the day I was born).

Choosing to dominate a person because of your advantage....Yes, people are going to do that. Its not a wise choice but its going to happen.

Catagories and labels for people for convenience sake....Again, its going to happen. However, why hate difference?

I think that people have difficulty when they dont feel they have alot of understanding about how they feel about something or someone.

Exploring something or someone new is difficult for some people. Indecision can lead to doubt and doubt can lead to negative emotions. Unfortunately, joy isnt something they have alot of practice at so they choose the emotions that are convenient and comfortable to them. They make quick decisions that they feel will protect and preserve them rather than wise decisions that will make them and everyone around them happier as well as making the world a better place.

For those who are brave and patient enough to find the joy in exploring....for those who will seek better ways of responding to difference and practice the positive emotions that result....there are answers. Better still, there is comfort in the journey toward seeking answers.

I believe it's hard to accept something different as in a way everybody is different!

How to accept myself being different - that's the key to accept you being different.

And, joy ... Everybody talks about it. Everybody dreams about it. If only we'd all remember it's our birth right!

We are trying to be what others want us to be. It's just an impossible task. We often can't even be who we trully are! So how could we make the world see us if we ourselves don't do that?

Any way: life is great!

See it, feel it and most of all: Live it! :-)

Wishing you all the great things in life.

Suzana,
I agree.
I wish others could choose this approach also and find the joy it brings....the joy it seems to have broght you.

"Any way: life is great!"
I agree!

"See it, feel it and most of all: Live it! :-)

Wishing you all the great things in life."

I wish the same for you.:)

Hate difference?

Your autism is not the same as the autism as those who lack your communication skills. Will YOU, as in the case of my son, require institutional care for the rest of your life?

Would you give up your excellent abilities for the low functioning autistic persons who do not share your gifts?

Would you embrace the joy of a life of institutional care?

These are realities for some persons with autism.

Talking about hating differences has nothing to do with these realities.
