Newton's 3rd Law... (And Buffy's 1st)!

" For every action, there is an equal and opposite 

reaction..." 

Buffy believes that this applies to EVERYTHING in life, not just physics and 

motion.


Having autism means that she sees the world in black and white. Whenever something happens, she is also presented with the opposite side. She doesn't have a choice about it... But while it can be a nuisance and often very distressing, it has also taught her to appreciate BOTH sides of life, the GOOD and the BAD


Life on Planet Earth often obscures the ability to accept both sides of life. People either ignore the existence of the opposite side, or often take it for granted.


And while it is nice to always focus on the positive, happy things it doesn't give you a true picture. Life isn't rosy and sweet 100% of the time. There will be pitfalls, there will be hard times. People are equally as bad as they are good and nobody is 100% perfect!


Buffy and her soul-mate have a saying that sums this up very well... 

"Nobody is 100% perfect... Anyone who thinks 

that they are - that is the first thing that is 

wrong with them!!"

This is also where being autistic is a blessing for Buffy. She needs to see life as a 

balanced picture, that way when something negative does happen she can at least 

half expect it. Over the years this has helped to keep her on the straight-and-

narrow. It has taught her the values of life and to accept what she is for better or 

worse.


Unfortunately, her family don't share "Buffy", don't share her autism, and don't 

share her value of life. And some family members are only too happy to voice their 

disapproval of her values, especially when these values threaten their own self-

image.


Because "Claire" wasn't allowed to maintain this "balance" within her human 

family, she again found herself at the major crossroad: Life or Death.


She chose life but, to keep the balance, there had to be an opposite...
