Having Autism means I get to see the world in black and white. I see the good, the bad and the ugly in the way those realities present. Where others are not able to do that, they genuinely may not see another person’s faults, and instead will hold a candle to them.
And where on occasions those people are given the benefit of the doubt, I am able to see when someone has been wronged, or whether they deserve to have credit. But it is important whatever our circumstances, we see the reality and adjust our lives accordingly.
As a rule we would rather go with the familiar, than accept a person’s wrongdoings, and have to work through change. But where the mind plays tricks, we must make sure we’re clear on people’s intent. That is important.
It is people’s intent that determines good character. That if good character isn’t happening because of their intent, we mustn’t hold a candle to them.
