Life Lesson: People Will Be Wrong


One thing I’ve learned in life is that, no matter what, people are going to misunderstand me and make mistakes about my intentions. This is especially true since I have autism. There are some things I can do to help prevent these misunderstandings, and I will do them as much as I can, but misunderstandings will still happen. That’s why sometimes the most important thing a person can do is remember that people are wrong about her. Remember that people are wrong when they think something untrue about her. I’m trying really hard to remember that anyone who thinks I’m rude, selfish or self-centered is wrong. It’s difficult, though, especially with my self-hatred problems.


Friendship Lament


Friends to talk to,
Friends who love me
For who I am.

Friends to talk to about:
Favorite Disney movies
My own, strange obsessions.

Is it too selfish?
Is it too much to ask?

Other people ask for more, too much.
Why do they socialize such?
Why do they have many friends,
More than me?

Why are unkind people popular?
Why are nicer people weird and uncool,
Just like in high school?
