autism f. Gk autos, meaning self

A state of morbid self-absorption.

(Oxford Dictionary of Etymology)

 

Is it not the aim in life to shine one’s light through the unique expression of one’s authentic self?

In the case of autism, a diagnosis of morbid self-absorption casts the net of disease over the ability to stay connected with one’s authentic self.

In this neuro-typical world where external dictates rule, and appearances are all-important, it’s a remarkable feat that these sensitive autistic souls have actually defied expectation in order to stay true to themselves.

Autism = the state of staying true to one’s authentic self.
