"So how do people with autism see the world, exactly? We, and only we, can ever know the answer to that one! Sometimes I actually pity you for not being able to see the beauty of the world in the same way we do. Really, our vision of the world can be incredible, just incredible." Naoki Higashida (pg. 59)
The most frustrating thing when it comes to trying to talk about problems (even if it's not mental illness) is the other person makes it about themselves and that either they've "had it harder" or "your problem aren't as bad as *insert their problem*" Why do we feel we have to outweigh each other in who has or has had it the worst? We all go through and process things differently.
