There’s a side of Autism you don’t hear people talk about.
There is a profoundly beautiful aspect to Autism that I’m always amazed by.
My oldest poses the most soul provoking questions.
My youngest has a heart for people and animals that can bring tears to your eyes.
I’ve always said that Autism isn’t a disability. Disability doesn’t begin to describe the beautiful side to Autism.
Both my children are so in tune with their souls. Truly.
I’ve called my kids earth angels since I found out their “quirks” were on the Autism checklist.
Sometimes I wonder if Autism is the universes way of bringing a new change to this world.
I’ve never met one autistic person that doesn’t have a truly kind heart. And anyone would agree humanity is indeed in need of more soulful truly good people.
I hate that the medical community has put such an emphasis on the challenging side to autism.
So now parents are forever examining their young kids for the dreaded list of things to watch for.
Instead of seeing what a gift it can be.
Both my kids have their own gifts. (And struggles) but steer them in the direction of something they have interest in and they will shock you with their focus, their desire to learn.
Have you noticed most places you go to customer service sucks and most checkers are being replaced with machines. More and more people spend more time socializing on the web than they do with people daily. The need for socialization is changing. More and more children are being diagnosed with autism. But what if you looked into the future. There will be no need for much social interaction if things continue as they are.
Socialization is changing.
So whose to say those with autism aren’t just souls ahead of their time paving the way towards our future?
One day my autistic children will grow into autistic adults and gift this world with their unique abilities and kind souls.
