“Being different is what sets you apart from everybody else in this world. It allows you to be unique. It allows you to process information in ways that people will never understand, and see things in ways that others would find unimaginable. It allows you to break free from the mold of society. You are not the same as anybody else, yet you are no different to anybody else. You are YOU… Don’t ever change!” – Autistic-ally Beautiful
