As the New Year approaches, I want to tell others out there, especially those teens with Aspergers, that life does get better.
I want you to know that although we aren’t born with the ability to learn about initiating and maintaining social relationships by observing others, it is something we can and usually do learn as we mature.
I want you to know that people do fall in love with us and stay in love, and that there are nurturing relationships ahead.
If you are an Aspie teenager, all of this may seem impossible right now, but I promise you, these things do lie ahead. Even for you.
I know. I am living proof.
Love you all, and pray that you have a meaningful and sociable New Year.
