The following post contains adult language.
I’ve been there so many times.
I am often misunderstood and can come off as standoffish and cold. Other times I am overly friendly with poor boundary recognition. It is hard when you are a genuinely kind person who is constantly misunderstood or called “rude”.
So much of what he says about not knowing how to respond and not knowing what to say tends to get me into trouble. All of the time my brain is going and sometimes my words are not ready to come out.
I don’t think in words unless I write them out or actively work to think about words. They don’t come out automatically and almost always will take great effort.
When I don’t have something to say – please do not assume I am trying to be rude. Asperger’s may be nicknamed the “Ass-whole Syndrome” but that is only because people don’t understand our true intentions.
I am Autistic and I am NOT an Ass-hole.
I just discovered the Just A Skinny Boy channel on YouTube and can take NO credit for his video. Please check out and subscribe to his channel for more great content.
