autisticalice: (happiness; katy)
One of my dreams is to meet Katy Perry. I would do anything to meet her. I don't care what it is. I love her to death because she's my biggest inspiration. I've always been so misunderstood and always afraid to show people who I really am. I grew up living in a world of my own where no one was allowed inside. It made me withdraw and become a big shell. I was bullied growing up because of those differences. I couldn't make friends because I didn't know how. I wasn't like everyone else.

I feel glad that Katy is out there because I feel like I'm not the only one who is different. I'm not the only one who wants to show everyone my true colors. I want people to see me for me and not someone that I'm not. Having autism and ADHD has always left me constantly misunderstood. I've been cyberbullied for lying about being disabled when it's the truth. Most people think when they find out that I just want attention. In real life my parents always fail to really see my struggles. They want me to be someone that is really hard for me to be. They don't understand me. I know they try but it's really hard for anyone to actually understand me.

Katy has really shown me that it's okay to be yourself. That even if you aren't normal or a little weird, that it's okay. She's also shown me that I shouldn't give up on what I love and one of those things is writing. She's shown me that even if life throws me down to get back up and keep fighting. I will keep fighting. As a self-educated writer, it's not easy to learn from yourself. Someday I want to make a difference, just like Katy. I want to be an advocate for people with not only autism but all ranges of disabilities. I want to show them that it's okay to be who you are and that you shouldn't let ignorance hold you down.

I want to show the world what she showed me. I hope someday I will become a writer. I want to use my ability to show people what my writing can do. I want the world to see what it's done to me and how i managed to survive the falls and failures in my life. I want people to see that I never gave up even when I felt like I was going to. I just want people to know I'm out there and that I'm ready to show them what I've been through so they know they aren't alone.

I haven't found out how to do that but I know someday that it's what I'm going to do.

It's important to be yourself. Otherwise you get lost in the crowd. :)
