Today is autism pride day. Its a day to be proud about Autism.
So if you are Autistic that means its a day to feel pride in yourself. Pride in what you have achieved, pride in your difference, Pride in your uniqueness.
At other times you may feel that your difference from the accepted norm is a negative. You may focus on your struggles trying to live and function in a world that’s not designed for you. You may focus on the missed opportunities, the exhaustion, and the frustration.
But today my diverse friends please take a breath and focus on the things that make you amazing. Because Autism is you. You are Autism, and you are amazing.
