As someone on the autistic spectrum, I know I can be very hard on myself for the things I can’t do like everyone else. The things I struggle with that come so easy for those I know; socializing, travelling, working, relationships and all the other things in-between…

And I have to remind myself about the things I can do, the things that are unique to me. The things I need to hold on to. So often we forget these things. That’s the kindness we owe ourselves.
