So many posts have been churned, written and re-written in my mind in the last few days that I am really not sure, which one I should give words to in this attempt. But I know I need to clear out my mind.
I have wanted to write about feeling a special connection with autistic children/people (I mostly meet children/adolescents) for the longest period, but I am afraid of not understanding this connection well enough to articulate it properly. Then again, I always feel unsure when I want to put something in writing out there, I am afraid I might not agree when I read it a few months later, or that I have misunderstood something, or that I am being insensitive or disrespectful in some way. But I also think that putting my thoughts here to engage with other people on the topic will bring more insight into discrepancies in my thought processes.
