Y’know, in life, whether we are autistic or not, we all have one single obsession… And that is, we obsess over what we can’t do. We beat ourselves up, knock overselves down, we destroy ourselves. Slowly whittling away at ourselves, eating away at our own confidence. We, as humans, have such an unhealthy relationship with this aspect of our life.
I myself, having lost the ability to walk unaided, losing the ability to cycle, finding that I am just not capable of full-time work, achieving so much in my academic pursuits then finding in the real world I lag far behind my peers.It is safe to say, there are many things that I am simply not capable of doing. I vent my frustration too easily, I am easily agitated, I make simple decisions far too complicated, I overthink constantly, the list could go on.
But, at some point, we have to consider the possibility, that, all of us, every single human walking this earth, is just trying to get through each day. Many of us are ravaged by the demons of our own mind.
At some point, we have to make the decision to accept that, we all have our faults, we all have a variety of skills that are not as developed as we would like. And that… That is perfectly fine.
All we can do, is aim for today to be better than yesterday, and aim for tomorrow to be better than today.
