Jane Lynch arrives for the Trevor Project’s 2013 ‘TrevorLIVE’ Event Honoring Cindy Hensley McCain at Chelsea Piers (June 17, 2013)
I actually reworded it, I meant that people consider me socially retarded. I hate the word, and I hate that people feel the need to consider me that and at times tell me even. I am awkward, as I do have Asperger’s syndrome, as high functioning as I might be and as easy it is to forget. But I’m tired of people taking the piss, frankly speaking.
While being considered by some to be socially retarded I’m not an idiot.
You are free to treat me like one, of course, but I hope you know that nice people are actually the worst people to cross.
Because I’m nice, and helpful, and I might not pick up on people playing me straight away, it doesn’t mean that there isn’t a line you can cross and never go back.
I reconsidered everything I thought was true about myself, I gave up on events I could’ve gone to to save money so we could go out, apparently it wasn’t enough.
That’s alright, I just wish people would stop making up excuses and cancelling plans just for the heck of it, and had the guts to say “I just don’t feel like it”.
Are you ever just overwhelmed by the horrifying thought that maybe, nobody ACTUALLY wants you around? And it’s not that you think everyone hates you, but it’s just that you’re not special to anyone? And that its really kind of sucky that you’re about 98% sure that nobody thinks “Wow, I just really like talking to her.” and that you could probably just disappear without anyone caring that much?
