Which legacy will you leave?

December 30, 2018

I’m always astonished that autism acceptance, that accepting diversity requires a ‘movement’.

I look forward to the day when people acknowledge the insanity of the need for such a thing at all, but the power in which the Neurodiversity Movement completely changed the human paradigm.
.
I visualise my descendants exploring their family history-the stories of who went before them..
.
And discovering that I was the first in a long line of my generations to be an adult diagnosed as autistic.
.
But they won’t see tragedy. .
.
I’ll leave behind me a long, heavy imprint of PRIDE.
.
The legacy of autistic pride.
.
I might be known as the eccentric, the different or the special one..sure (already am)..
.
But when the world KNOWS-truly knows who we, autistics REALLY are..
.
My four children who are also autistic,
.
And their children,
.
And their children,
.
Will stand steady and confident in who they are.
.
It’s this visualisation that has me grateful for the one thing that gave me a lot of grief over my lifetime..
.
I, (and others) for so long considered myself as strongly opinionated with a loud mouth..
.
But I now recognise these attributes as gifts..
.
Autistic gifts;
.
My strong beliefs, lived experience and a steady voice that carries them.
.
What narrative will you leave behind for your lineage?
.
Tragedy and grief?
.
Or pride and change?
