I Am Still a Child – Meeting an Old Friend

The Larger Picture

I may never escape the brutal social repercussion, but it is not to say that I give up living. I may never be the most pleasant companion, because with time, the most understanding partner will still expect you to have learnt the ‘skills’. The task on hand is to educate the public that just because I am learning, doesn’t mean I can ever master it, I may always just be the student; it’s always going to be an enormous effort on my part, so perhaps we can meet half way. Stop expecting me to ever be the social butterfly – my version of it is like a part-timer in your world. I can be the most charming social butterfly, but I can only handle part-time. 😉 So, I don’t give up learning; and you give up expecting the impossible. Deal?

The Lesson of Bad Old Shoes

Sometimes we pick up the old pair of shoes and put them on again, because we don’t have other pair of shoes, or we are just too lazy to find another pair that fits. Or worse, we are on a rebound!

When we have no shoes, or too impatient to hunt for that perfect pair again, we compromise for less, much less, and conveniently forget the pain that this pair of old shoes once brought. Perhaps there was a time that it fitted quite well, but that time has passed, yet we convinced ourselves that we could rekindle the good old comforting feelings once again.

Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that all old shoes are no good. I am saying that the problematic ones are problematic.

Aspie Love is like the weather now – Foggy and Imaginary

Did you do the usual Merry Christmas and Happy New Year countdown? Personally, counting down is only meaningful when doing it with someone you at least think will spend the rest (or at least foreseeable future) of your life together. Recap the things that have been done in the year, the progresses, the setbacks. The lessons. I did that in…

See the Good, even in the Worst

Minutes passed. He broke the silence by explaining why he was being defensive earlier. I assured him that I bore no grudge and I understood. Passengers can be very difficult; people can be difficult and unreasonable. People blame people when things go wrong.

It is sad to observe that people are quick to criticize, doubt, judge and choose to deny good. When different things happen in our life, they teach us something new; when same things happen in our life, they are reminders that we ought not ignore.

When we throw a good shout out, it echoes back. Echoes are in multiplicity.
