When i was younger, i almost always took things very literally. It's taken years to move past that. i've been working since i was diagnosed with my own determination and with psychologists. Not just on that of course, but i'm using it as a small example. I've gotten to the point where i can effectively use sarcasm,euphemisms and the like. I pick up on hidden messages and themes in stories. And i'm proud of that. sometimes i'll still accidentally be very literal with an interpretation of a non literal thing. But that's becoming rarer and rarer. and that makes me happy. anyone else have a similar story?

“Men passionately desire to live after death, but they often pass away without noticing the fact that the memory of a really good person always lives. It is impressed upon the next generation, and is transmitted again to the children. Is that not an immortality worth striving for? ”
