Cracked, but not broken.

Tea bowl fixed in the Kintsugi method

Different should not equal defective or wrong.

Neurotypical shouldn’t equal perfection.

Nothing and no one is perfect in this world.

I feel like Aspies(and neuroatypical’s in general) are like Kintsugi.  It’s the Japanese art form where they take broken pottery and instead of tossing it, fix it with gold, silver or platinum lacquer, turning it into something which is even more beautiful than the original.

That’s an Aspie.

We’re a little cracked, but our uniqueness is the gold lacquer which puts us back together into something special.

I like that.

I like the imagery.

    We’re all a little cracked. Aspie and NT. I have no problem admitting to being so, besides I like it. Who wants to be normal? That would be boring.
    I do love the imagery you created. 🙂
