I've been moving mountains that I once had to climb.
Off to Copenhagen (what's my arm doing though)
My body is definitely not perfect but I’m doing my best to not think too much about it. All my scars, bruises and stretch marks are a part of my past and the reason why I’m mentally stronger than ever.
I feel like this is usually quite “a taboo” subject – if not to others then to me at least - and I don't want it to be, so here goes nothing. I was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome three years ago. I was scared it meant that I was a freak, that I was dumb. It’s taken me years to realise I’m neither – I’m just different and that’s okay.
I’m socially awkward. I can never tell what another person’s feeling or what their intentions are. I don’t understand feelings or emotions and somehow manage to drown in them. I’m a slow thinker and have a hard time coming up with something to say in the moment. I’m not easy to get to know, I’m not easy to talk to. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t want. I crave affection and intimacy as much as the next one, but it fucking terrifies me at the same time. BUT being an “aspie” is also the root of my creativity; why I write, why I read, why I like to capture the world through my camera. It’s why my mind works the way it does and where my imagination comes from. And for that I am eternally grateful.
So. Conclusion of this. Embrace your flaws because they make you unique. You’re all amazing. (I’ll stop being cheesy now I promise 🙃)
