Autistic Pride Day 2018

Well, it’s Autistic Pride Day. It’s also the first Autistic Pride Day I finally learned that being autistic is okay.
The thing is, I was forty before I learned it was okay to be autistic.
I was forty before it was okay to not be good around delicate glass.
I was forty before it was okay to need some quiet space.
I was forty before it was okay to dislike certain food textures.
I was forty before it was okay to be weird.
I was forty before it was okay to be fat.

Now that being forty is almost over, I have finally learned it is okay to be myself.

I have decided to bring back the Infinity Rose. (see the picture? If not, it’s a rose with a rainbow infinity symbol in its center.)

I don’t want anyone else to be forty before it’s okay to be themselves.
