I have this “habit” of always offending people although it’s not my intention. It’s not like I wake up each day and gleefully think to myself,”Let’s see how many people I can offend today!” it just always sort of seems to work out that way. Between my Asperger’s(and related social gaffes and lack of social graces), my strong opinions, speaking my mind, not being Politically Correct, religious beliefs and high standards and moral values I am always going against the world, against popular opinion,and am always managing to offend people.
I don’t mean to, honest, it just happens. I have good intentions but it always seems to blow up in my face and to go against me. I don’t go along with the immoral world or go along with the crowd. This has caused me to be ostracized and bullied my entire life. I have the courage to stand up for what I believe in, defend what’s right, stand up for God’s Truth,and to not give in to pressure even if I am the only one standing alone. I will not compromise my principles no matter what. I won’t give in to society’s godless anything- goes- mass brainwashing and indoctrination; I am not a “sheeple” and will not blindly and mindlessly follow the herd.I think for myself and I say what I think. If other people don’t like it or get offended then that’s their problem, not mine.I have a clear conscience and I can sleep at night.I am accountable to God and NOT to the world or to other people and if they don’t like me, so what!
If I offend people, so be it, even though that’s not what I set out to do, it just happens. I won’t go along with “popular opinion” if it’s morally wrong.With my Asperger’s I also don’t think or react like other people do and I don’t “censor” myself like others do and people are always taking what I say the wrong way or “twisting” it around to what I don’t mean. I can’t judge body language or social cues and often don’t know what’s “appropriate” and just “let it fly.” I have good intentions, want to help people, try to socially inter-act(even though I’m a disaster at it) do care about people and try to give them the benefit of the doubt but my intentions and comments always get taken the wrong way and people find me offensive, even caustic or mean. I don’t want to be, or mean to be that way,but it’s just the way I am; what my life has made me.No offence.
