Being autistic can be rough…and it can be a lot more difficult because of how we’re treated. If you’re autistic, please take a moment to celebrate yourself today! If you’re not autistic, please tell an autistic person you care about how important they are. For what they bring into your life, for what they bring into the world, and just for being themselves. Want to give a special autistic person in your life a gift? A gift card to a place where they can buy a stuffie, stim toys, or their favorite foods is always a good idea! Let them pick out their own squishmallow if possible rather than picking for them, as they’re each a different squish experience.
Remember you are important, you’re beautiful and you bring joy to this world just by existing and being yourself. Please be kind and loving toward yourself.
