Over the course of my 20 years as a person with Aspergers I have discovered that I do not see the world as others do. There are two different ways in which simplicity comes into play in my everyday world.
The first is the way I walk into situations. I see them in their simplest forms. If I see two people fighting with each other I think to myself, “If they dislike each other that much they should stop being friends.” It is sort of like being a five year old in an adults body. Seeing the world this way means that I do not stress about some of the things other 20 year olds do. They worry about what they eat all the time. They eat food they do not like just to be healthy, but they complain the entire time. When I see this I think to myself, “if you hate the food you’re eating, don’t eat it”. They see eating healthy as having an impact on their lives in the long run. I do not see the long term effects, I see them being unhappy in the moment.
