Aspergers Warrior

I am a collector of positive thinking quotes. It is what I do to battle my depression.  As I have been blessed/cursed with Aspergers (aka High Functioning Autism) , and it seems that depression is part of my life. Does everyone with Aspergers suffer with depression? Probably not, but it seems that the majority do.

Perhaps it has something to do with the sadness and frustration of not quite fitting into the “regular” world, missing social cues, that are so important in communicating with other people and in my actions or words being misunderstood. Whatever the case, I read somewhere that it is good to collect positive sayings to make one feel better. So, I have done so and  have posted a few around the house. Below is one of my favorites. believe-in-yourself

It is hard to be yourself when yourself is so different from the rest; however, I take comfort in knowing that there are a lot of others with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other non-typical brain connections who equally have trouble with their emotions and reading people. So, I think, for myself it is best to think of it as a battle. A battle of which each victory is silently measured by  how far I have stepped away from fear and actually accomplished my objective. I am a warrior, and will always fight to be who I am, to enjoy life and those around me with similar interests, and laugh with delight each of my personal victories.

Believe in yourself
