Thinking a lot about autism spectrum-related things this week. Was lucky to attend a workshop about it and now my mind is firing off ideas, trying to sort them out. Still scattered but feel compelled to note it for later.
I want to give myself more grace when my expectations outweigh my abilities. I want to understand and recognize when my expectations were too high for my actual real-life abilities. I want to appreciate what actual abilities I have instead of thinking I could have done more or done something differently.
my internal limits are a guideline that I actually can build a life around
increased demand avoidance is a sign of those limits being crossed (feeling out of control? brain wants to avoid in order to take back control)
How can I create a life that fits my brain and nervous system better? What does that life look like?
