No, I’m Not “Overcoming” Autism
I spent an entire week immersed in autistic space, and it was life-changing. I was in a room surrounded by only autistic people across the spectrum. I saw no tragedies – only wonderful friends who embraced and loved being autistic.
But no matter your neurology, life presents itself with challenges. Autism is the same.
Autism isn’t some otherworldly entity; it’s how I’m wired. I’m neurodivergent – my brain is a bit different from the status quo. I’m not broken, not less. I’m just me!
I became less suicidal, a little less depressive.
I accepted that I am just me, and that’s okay.
When I accepted the fact that autism is just how my brain is wired, I asked myself a different question.
