Unconscious Experiences

Unconscious experiences are the experiences we’ve lived but can’t always recall. The preconscious as it’s called, contains thoughts and feelings that we’re not always aware of, which exist below our level of consciousness.

Autism and Emotional Immaturity

What is emotional immaturity? I ask that because people like me with autism are affected by this. I differ from the way neuro-typicals understand emotional maturity. Through autism I see and navigate the world differently.

Finding out about cerebral palsy at 46 and autism at 56, means the weight off my shoulders has finally been lifted. Learning about my disabilities, my symptoms and my challenges has literally been life-changing.

Anything we struggle with that we get to know about, ‘is a’ weight off our shoulders. It’s my truth, knowing my truth is a relief. Even if I had been able to place my disability as a child, I would still have needed to understand ‘me.’

The general dysfunction cycle

Breaking the cycle of general dysfunction, is important if we are to bring peace into our lives. And unless we choose to break the cycle, we will pass those dysfunctional traits on to our own children.

We have to want to break the cycle. We have to want to change, we have to want to make it happen instead of talking about making it happen. We have to want to unlearn the behaviour patterns we’ve lived …

An Inspiring Read

Learning that I had a disability at the age of 46, not knowing what my disability was, or what my symptoms meant, I was given no choice but to look into my disability.

I could write about some of my experiences on my blog, but it wasn’t the right platform to explore my disability. I needed …
