As an autistic person, I find it harder to gain and keep my confidence. A lot of the reasons for this are related to discrimination and people simply not understanding what it is like to be autistic. I have struggled with my self-image and confidence my entire life. It is something that I am working on improving so that I can become a more confident person over time.
This is not limited to just me either. Many people with autism have issues with their confidence and struggle to feel proud of themselves. A lot of this is because of society’s idea of what ” success ” is. Success is more than just fame and fortune and having a great job, but society doesn’t want you to believe that. Society is sadly centered around being famous and having a lot of material items. Society also thinks you should be shunned if you act any differently than what is considered ” normal “
Well, I am here to break those expectations and show that we can be great people and that we should be proud and confident!
