….Weiner, Schwarzenegger, Spitzer, Edwards !? NOT! What are our ‘role models’ ~coming to…Ooops. BAD PUN! Sorry folks, this is a family AUTISM~FRIENDLY website ! I just have to seriously question the “social skills “of more and more Neuro-typicals. In positions of power or not. People are people. The longer I live the more and more that becomes crystal clear. As humans we put people on pedestals. These undeservered pinnacles. Idolized and fantasized. Made into perfection, “socially” and morally. A certain subset transported and morphed into powerful specimens. Propped up icons, if you will.
The 1st problem with this equation is that pesky “P-word” P E R F E C T I O N. I have said it before and I will say it again simply unattainable. Let that helium balloon go folks. You will feel a big weight dropping off of your shoulders. We are all human and we all lack social graces at times. Especially when it comes to opening our minds to embracing imperfection in ourselves and others. Imperfection in all of it’s brilliant humanity. Why do we believe that the value of a person can be quantified against the value of another? Prettiest, Smartest, Hippest, most Perfect… what else…hmmm…most Egotistical? Can’t we just agree all people are amazing creatures of earth?
Why do people pedestal prop others, then sit in judgement when said icon shows their humanity in all its glory? Constantly idolizing percieved perfections and social superiority without careful consideration is assinine. Yet, it’s done all day, every day backed by dollars flowing through a wind tunnel of insanity. The “3 pronged” trillion dollar deficits… financially, socially and morally. It’s a feeding frenzy that tells me it is time to go back to basics. Understanding the human psyche. The way Autism focuses your knowledge of the brain. Understanding, how our brain dictates why we do what we do. Funny, the lessons mankind has forgotten to teach ITSELF. Well, don’t fret, AUTISM is here!
So, haha how IRONIC!! The population of people supposedly so socially inept have taught an army of us a new insight. A NEW Insight we can teach others to realize how silly it is to have every bit of your feelings and /or emotions tied to your thinking. More than likely causing your social life stress and anxiety. Highly emotional thinking. What’s the point of it anyway? Oh yeah, it is keeping ‘Reality TV’ cranked on high and those big buck$ rolling in. The studios love it. Are these socially rude and impudent reality stars recieving millions for…rescuing humanity? Setting social skill standards and trends for the rest of us? Such scary contemplations.
That is why I will keep fighting the Brain-styles Awareness ’good fight’ to help others wake-up and examine their own social skills and how they “do what they do.” There is alot to it. If you examine the interactions and or lack of interactions of the Autistic Mind. It SHINES a light on some things untapped in you. How you can step out of the trap . The trap of constantly idolizing and fantasizing about the perfection people are trying to sell to you. The elusive item all seem to crave. The pedestal not worth fighting for…because we all know what goes up must come down! Literally.
