The Day I Learned Something About Myself
January 29, 2012
Today was an incredible day. After a particularly grueling period when people of every age and race spoke about concerns with the same things that I deal with, such as family relationships, love, security, and expressions of relatedness, I noticed that I am the same as everyone else. Really, my struggle with autism as a prison is nothing compared with the prison of my identity, the limitations, beliefs, and restrictions that I transparently put on myself that channel my outlook. These artificial creations of my mind empower or disable me far more than my autistic struggles. Everyone is in the same boat as me and we think we’re alone. From now on I am creating a life of RELATIONSHIP, POWER, POTENTIAL, AND MAGNIFICENT EXPERIENCES.
YES, THE FUTURE IS WHAT I MAKE OF IT. REALLY, GOOD EXPERIENCES WITH REALLY GREAT PEOPLE FILL MY FUTURE. YES! THIS OUTSTANDING PAST IS AHEAD OF ME!
Hi john! This is Angelique from your recent advanced course of the landmark forum. In the seminar, I had mentioned how inspired I am by you and your dad. If you remember, I was having trouble relating to my son carter….trying to make him “perfect”. I know now that he is already perfect! That makes my job as a mother so much easier!!! From meeting you, my experience of others has FOREVER altered. I no longer see people as their disability, I see them for who they really are. That is a gift I cherish more than any other. Thank you for that. Just think of how much you have accomplished is such a short period of time. Watch out world! I can’t wait to see the amazing impact that you have on all of us! You are a true blessing in my life. Thank you!
You’re a blessing to me, angelique. i am grateful far beyond my ability to tell you. i hope you will visit my webside and share it with otehrs to help me find 25 people with voices ready to be discovered. Thanks for wanting carter to be exactly as he is.
You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually
something which I think I wuld never understand.
It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try too gett the hang oof it!
