As people with neurological differences, we face some obstacles in society. A lot of these relate to other people not understanding why we do what we do and why we think the way that we do. We are different, not less. We deserve to be treated with respect and dignity. We have the power to change the world, because we are a community. There is no reason that people with differences can’t be accepted for who they are. A lot of people just haven’t yet realized that we can do great things too. Our differences can actually give us unique abilities.
One thing that really bothers me is when people say I have ” obsessions ” because that;s not what they are. They’re either special interests or simply things I am attached to in some way or another. Always take the time to lend a helping hand and be open to listening to those with differences, because we understand and know a lot more than most people think.
