I wish my autism spectrum disorder would be a thing I could be happy about having
I am actually watching a little boy who is on the spectrum as we speak, and he is the happiest child in the world … especially when he’s driving me nuts lol! I’m always envious of him for that carefree attitude. Obviously, I know this is not the same for everyone on the spectrum, but I’m only saying it because this little boy has no idea that people “feel sorry” for him, nor does he care. Yes, things are difficult for him to navigate at times, but he’s also incredibly smart and he impresses me every day with how quickly he learns. Autism is not a dirty word, and it is nothing to be ashamed about. You probably have abilities and senses that others could only ever wish for. I know how hard you have to work sometimes and I know that’s really stressful, but you are an amazing person with so much potential. You may have Autism, but it’s not all that you are. Be happy that you’re you. I’m proud of you!
