A few paragraphs on “Aversive Autistic Practice”
Why do we not just say what is on our mind? Often times, we keep quite due to perceived consequences/unknown dangers. There is more than one opinion in regards to many things of this nature. Children are usually diagnosed with autism when they do not communicate “properly”. Many intelligent characters of all ages rarely speak “too much” – it is just how they are.
I, personally, love to communicate. I may not always know all about the topic, however I speak when I think it may pertain to someone else’s understanding or benefit. The idea of “Aversive Practice” is to go through with an action despite possible consequences. If one is worried, they go through with an action, and then they are no longer worried. It is a take on mental health; the notion should be used with cautious consideration and confidence, too. Do not do something you will knowingly regret, in other words. Do, however, exercise a healthy confidence in your everyday life. Be a “doer” – get things done well.
As far as the prompt goes; I do not readily have a great example. Many times, I will have something tempting to say to someone and keep quite – silence is far better than the consequences of giving into temptations. Not everyone sees some forms of sarcasm or mockery as flattery. We are tempted to speak our own mind, sometimes; opinions can be disagreed with. Statements can have their drawbacks. However, I pride myself with thinking before speaking when I can. Nothing is better than knowing when it is a healthy decision to speak competently, from the diaphragm. When you have something to say, mean well and speak. There is no requirement for wasting time with unnecessary euphemismistic phrases in the healthy practice of proper communication. Speak or do not, and carry on.
Here is an e-book I have yet to read on speaking and writing properly:
