Because of my challenges with cognitive empathy, I find it hard to read between the lines! I even had to look up the phrase “read between the lines” before writing this post, just to be sure I was using it correctly. Why is that? I have a tendency to take things literally and have to memorize ambiguous phrases and their meanings, like a neverending vocabulary list that requires constant review. So, whenever there’s an idiomatic phrase I struggle with, I trust in the dictionary or even Google when I’m in a rush!
