Today was an incredible day. After a particularly grueling period when people of every age and race spoke about concerns with the same things that I deal with, such as family relationships, love, security, and expressions of relatedness, I noticed that I am the same as everyone else. Really, my struggle with autism as a prison is nothing compared with the prison of my identity, the limitations, beliefs, and restrictions that I transparently put on myself that channel my outlook. These artificial creations of my mind empower or disable me far more than my autistic struggles. Everyone is in the same boat as me and we think we’re alone. From now on I am creating a life of RELATIONSHIP, POWER, POTENTIAL, AND MAGNIFICENT EXPERIENCES.
YES, THE FUTURE IS WHAT I MAKE OF IT. REALLY, GOOD EXPERIENCES WITH REALLY GREAT PEOPLE FILL MY FUTURE. YES! THIS OUTSTANDING PAST IS AHEAD OF ME!
