Comment from Chance

I am no longer a teen, however I would like to share a bit of wisdom that I have accumulated that has really helped me - and maybe one of you - to successfully integrate both socially and professionally. 

When i was a young child, I often did not understand simple things like when I was the butt of a joke, or when I should or should not say the things that crossed my mind, etc. At some point I decided to study my peers and there interactions with each other the way somebody might study a foreign language. Honestly that's a pretty accurate comparison for me. 

Although I internally still miss the social mark, outwardly I've gotten so good at decoding body language that i can often predict social outcomes before others even realize they are developing. 

Although I still have a difficult time relating to others' feelings, now it's just a matter of cause and effect. I became one of the popular kids in high school, and now have a successful career.

Hope that maybe looking at things from a different point of view may help in some small way.
