I found this online the other day, and I just keep returning to it. I can’t tell who created it, just that it was done in 2012. But this feels like every day. I hide it so well most times, but that doesn’t always work. Here’s the text from this drawing:
I’m analytical (I’m analyzing right now). – I’m egocentric.
I love people, but they hate me instead. – I’m literal.
I hate too much attention/fuss. – I love routines and structure.
I think jokes are insults (then people bash me for being so serious).
I give too much eye-contact at times – then too little.
I always think people hate or dislike me.
I don’t know how to start a conversation.
People think I’m boring.
Why do people judge me when I’m only being nice?
I notice things people don’t normally.
I have emotional outbursts for the most simplest things.
I love to talk but no one gives me a chance.
I don’t show much facial expression.
People think I’m angry when I’m actually happy.
