WE THRIVE ON SELF CARE

Updated: May 1, 2019





Because our brains and bodies overload very quickly for a multitude of reasons; sounds, smells, touch, movement, people, our own super focus', demands, pressures etc, my child and I are required to know our needs and look after them.

With loads of solitude, and choose relationships with others who respect our choices.

Free of demands or expectations.

Free of gossip, backstabbing, mind games and other silly stuff (I used to do) as these are time wasters that cause humans like myself unnecessary stress from unnecessary pressures.

I can't thrive in others untreated self love despite how much I love them.

I identify with Relationship and Responsibility OCD and tricky humans do my head in ... literally!

They can consume me.

So I am to make tough choices with humans sometimes. It is not nature to step away, however when beautiful humans add to my already tricky mind it's no good for me.

And what is not good for me is not good for my child.

My child will cop whatever I don't deal with as much as I cop what others don't deal with if I hang around longer than my neurology can take.

When I choose courage over being liked and loved by others my child and I thrive.

We take care of ourselves.

That's always our responsibility!

Thriving is also our responsibility too!

ACKNOWLEDGMENT

TRADITIONAL OWNERS

We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we work and live and recognise their continuing connection to land, water and community. We pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging.

OUR AUTISTIC/NEURODIVERGENT CULTURE

​We acknowledge our LBGTIQ2KA+kin autistic/neurodivergent humans.

 

We use identity-first language, "I am autistic", opposed to "I'm a person with autism", reflecting Autism at the core of our identity, that Autism is a Spectrum, a part of neurodivergence and not a disorder. We radically embrace and celebrate neurodivergence.

 

Authoritarian and conforming learning and approaches such as ABA or Applied Behaviour Analysis, treatment or cures, ableism or functioning labels are harmful to both FAN and their child neurodivergent neurologies.

 

AFFILIATED DISCLAIMER

 

ROARHEART™ makes no recommendations nor has any opinions about or is responsible for the content or deficit language of neurodivergence on sites and links that are external to ROARHEART™. The language that describes neurodivergent neurologies and life experiences as disordered, defective or that to be "fixed, changed and cured" is offensive and harmful to FAN and their child.

It is strongly recommended that medical, psychiatric and other therapeutic advice or treatment can only be given by suitably trained and accredited professionals. ROARHEART™ is not a substitute either inferred or directly to replace any form of treatment participants are currently engaged in. We further suggest that prior to making any changes to current treatment participants discuss this with the practitioner that prescribed the treatment or at least get a second opinion from a suitably qualified and accredited clinician. We cannot do this we are not qualified.
