I can do many things – some of the time. When I can’t, it’s hard to convince people who’ve seen me do it before.

Moreover, it’s hard to convince myself.

I push myself too hard when I assume that my current self is the same as my recent self. It’s not – my abilities fluctuate wildly.

I want to grow more attentive to who I am right now, not twisting it to fit my memory of yesterday.

P.S. I write from my personal experience as an autistic. What I share is not a substitute for advice from an autistic medical professional. Also, some of my opinions have changed since I first wrote them.
