Autistic loneliness….

I go through feelings like this all the time. I can’t connect with most people because my life experience has been so outside the “normal” experience of social interaction that I have no way of relating. I’ve spent so much of my life alone, often willingly so, but I do want friends it’s just people are never interested in what I’m interested in or vice versa. Also, I always feel like I am going to offend someone because it’s difficult to tell what is appropriate in the moment. I rarely recount stories from my life to others because either I can’t recall the social details or I think they’ll just come off as negativity.

Anyway, just want you to know there are a lot of us that struggle and you aren’t alone. Thank you for hitting publish!
