My Mom is always telling me to go and play or to call a friend but honestly, most times I would rather be alone. Making friends and being a friend is hard. I have to try and figure out what they like and what they dislike. I have to remember names, faces and rules… lots of rules like taking turns and they have their own opinions. But I don’t want to be lonely or alone in life so I try… most days. But it is hard.
I use some tricks to help me. I try to remember people by certain features they have or by their achievements. This is why meeting new people is so difficult. I don’t know who they are or what they have done and I don’t remember their faces.
I do have a best friend. It’s easy with him because he is easy going and likes Dr. Who, playing Nerf battles and reading comic books. Stuff I like. But mostly he is my friend because he never gets upset when I yell or meltdown. He doesn’t judge me and not being judged is a a really good thing.
