….well, a letter to twenty-year-old me.
First, you’re going to be okay. Divorce is scary, but it’s not the end of the world.
Second, you’re autistic. I know you think you have some terminal illness because you get so tired after being around people. It’s okay. You’re autistic. And you’re going to be so relieved when you find out.
Third, you will fall in love again.
Fourth, the divorce was about him…not you. He’s been divorced three more times since you.
Fifth, you’re brilliant. And you can write. You just have to believe enough in yourself to try.
Now, stop crying into the ice cream.
He’s not worth it.
You’re going to be fine.
