"Don’t hate yourself for the trauma. The path to happiness is not a single one. There are many ways to be happy so the impossibility to turn back time before trauma does not mean you can never be happy. You can be happy again. You can trust others again. Don’t lose your hope to survive. Someday, you will be thankful for your past self who did not give up your life."
"Now, we can identify our emotions easily, we don't get attacks of emotion so overwhelming we just have to pause the world. We do have feelings that creep up and we do still have some things to work over, but also some of that is caused by the emotional dysregulation caused by our neurodivergence."
"It's hard to feel happy when it's your own head calling you a failure. Since then I've been researching ways to help me feel better, and improve in all aspects of life. I know my journey is not complete, but when you've been dealing with all of this stuff since you were five, you tend to pick things up."
"Wondering why you are different and why you can’t do or struggle with certain aspects of life, is an uphill battle. We have to accept that we are different. Decide how you are different and deal with that. How are you different from others? What do you struggle with? Are there any adaptations you can make to make things easier - even if it is not considered the norm?"
