I'm not broken

Our thoughts about ourselves are different to the ideas of others.

Our own views and concern to how others may see us can drive a negative mentality. This is highlighted through two perceptions in the template of windows, offering vision to how someone may view themselves in comparison to how others see the person.

True story: Helen met a Doctor in Sri Lanka who had an Autistic son aged 7. They got chatting about Happy Times and the benefits of Yoga for Autism. The next day Helen met his son and the first thing Dad asked was 'Can you fix him'. This was a Dr asking Helen if she could fix his child. The boy was upset, and Helen turned off the strong overhead light and he began to calm. Helen explained ‘Your son is not broken; he is sensitive to light though’. It was like a big light had been switched on for his father.

Inspired by: Autistic people.
