A Positive Balance

High highs and low lows. Autistic people’s emotions can be all in or all out. Internally, this can feel like the basic calm of exploring special interests, the joy of finding something we love, the dread-inducing fear of socializing, or the fiery outburst of an anger meltdown. Trying to balance our emotions can feel not only difficult but also disingenuous. Still, nothing helps to clear the head like time alone, time spent breathing, and time engaged in a distraction. At the end of the day, maintaining a balance lights up a more positive, less anxious day.
