What to do?!?!

When there is an important decision to be made, things to do, people to see, decisions about your life, we need to decide.  A common decision most people make or your own decision becomes our inner most toss up decision.  People should choose based on what makes them most comfortable and what would be most challenging.  Independent living is essential for our humanity because we need to show other people we can function in every daily living skill.  Daily living skills as simple as coming your hair or even brushing your teeth and wearing deodorant.  As a daily living skill gets more complex, we have to time ourselves doing all of these skills otherwise we wind up slowing down our day.  Daily living skills is about reaching out to our self and our things to take care of everything.  The more you can take care of yourself, the more independent you become.  Some people don’t want to take care of themselves ever no matter how much other people help them.  Every one has a right to live their life the way they please, but every one who knows how to do daily living skills should just do it.

The problem is how much daily living skills are necessary all the time while people want to do whatever interests them.  The more a person owns and needs to maintain adds to the daily living skills. Before you buy your next ownership as simple as an IPOD or even a CAR, you should say to yourself did I master the previous activities of daily living to add more to my life… Activities of Daily Living breakdown from very simple to very complex.  Think to yourself today whether you did simple skills like making your bed or even cleaning your cell phone.

One thought on “What to do?!?!

    You know why I think some autistic people have such a hard time living independently? They are told they need useless “daily living skills” in order to survive.

    I’m not a very neat person and I prefer it that way. Now, I like to have all rooms clean and pretty except for my room because it is my space, my space where I create and do stuff. I couldn’t do anything if it had to be clean.

    I don’t make my bed, there is crap everywhere, my clothes aren’t put away nicely, etc. A “normal” person would probably be appalled. But, since I’m not “normal” I prefer it that way.

    And, if absolutely needed, you can always get someone to help you clean: hiring someone every now and then really isn’t that expensive. Or, find someone who is much better able to do such things than you are and offer them a service you are good at: a barter.

    You don’t have to know how to cook to live independently, either. It is probably essential to know how to use a microwave but I’m pretty sure that isn’t considered “cooking.”

    I really don’t know how to do a lot of things, but I know how to do some things one way and it is enough for me. If I ever get into a serious pickle and need to learn another way than I’ll just ask my father and/or psychiatrist and I’m sure they will be able to help me.

    There are plenty of ways to get around those “daily living skills” that are always so emphasized.
