To all my fellow autistic people
Kristin Guin writes on tumblr:
To all my fellow autistic people who believe in God: You are loved fully and completely by God. Your autism is not something God has given you to overcome to prove His power. God does not need His power to be proved by His children overcoming God-given integral, inseparable parts of ourselves. God proves his power by the depth and breadth of the love of ourselves and others because, if we love ourselves, that means we are proud of ourselves, and pride in ourselves is empowering. God made you autistic because He recognizes the beauty and necessity of neurodiversity among His children.
