After having an amazing weekend which I will tell you all about in another post, I come back here to find some blog awards 🙂 I’ve also been dealing with another shutdown since last night so this has lifted my mood immensely!
I’m really happy to be nominated for this award. Living with Aspergers for me personally hasn’t been too bad. I can’t say it brings me sadness all the time or that it has had a massive impact on my life because it hasn’t completely. One thing I can say that I have done a lot of my life and which is probably down to the Aspergers is imagine perfect situations.
These thoughts would mainly take place late at night just before I would go to sleep. I still do it to this day. When I was younger I was always imagining myself being popular and having everyone like me, want to be my friend or just be trendy. I did have a group of friends growing up and I was comfortable with but I always wanted to be like the social butterflies. I would be in awe of them all having so much confidence to go anywhere with anyone and not caring.
I would also imagine a perfect lifestyle that would appeal to everyone but me. Now I’m older I tend to just imagine myself being a socialite. Even though I would never be able to maintain that lifestyle for long or cope very well I always wanted that. I can still remember my maths lessons in secondary school and having my desk next to the window, which was an open opportunity to let my mind wander off.
It’s taken me until the last year to finally realise I am what I am and nothing is going to change. I have friends that now understand me and take everything in to account. I no longer feel that pressure to be perfect and sociable all the time. I no longer feel that I have to like a certain genre of music to impress others or dress in a certain way to be accepted.
I’ll forever be imagining things. The perfect story in a scruffy poem or a messed up fairy tale for a novel. The perfect dream I’d like to fall asleep to or the perfect life to wake up to. It’s these visual thoughts that give me some hope for the future 🙂
