I had the greatest pleasure to watch a PBS special in my Health class today and gained inspiration in the least expected place!!
When I saw/heard your story… I was moved on many levels! You are a courageous and strong person. I admire your ambition.
I just wanted to let you know, your story has reached another person in this world and your story is inspiring!!
And I absolutely am in AWE with your postings, poetry, and creativity! It is a true and blessed gift you have! You made me smile multiple times and that is something I have not done in awhile! And I thank you!
Always your fan and friend!!
Thank you Krisna for being a fan of this blog and watching my feature on This Emotional Life. I am really am happy I can make you smile from what I write. I am working on more creative works of art both in writing and drawing, so I hope you can gear up to read or see them as soon as I post them. Hope you are having a good week! J
Mailbag from Gabrielle:
Jason, today in one of my classes and we are watching a movie that you are in. I just wanted to let you know that you truly inspire me. I know that you face more struggles and difficulties because of Asperger Syndrome. It is this that makes me proud of you, although I don’t know you. I just want to say, no matter what life throws at you, stay strong. I am very proud of you and think of you as an inspiration! Thanks for your time!
Hi Gabrielle, I appreciate all of your kind words about me after watching This Emotional Life. I am always facing many struggles and challenges in life because I have Asperger’s Syndrome. I am glad I have been able to give you some inspiration from my story. Be well, J
Mailbag from Rayn:
I found out about your site after seeing you on This Emotional Life and although I do not know you personally, I can say that from your writing and from the footage displayed in the documentary that you are indeed an amazing person. In my senior year of high school I met and became friends with a girl that had Asperger’s Syndrome. People, including some of my friends would say mean things about her and call her weird, but I knew deep down she was just as lovely as the next person.
All in all, I really enjoy[ed]what you have to say!
Thank you Rayn for enjoying seeing me on This Emotional Life. I really am appreciative of the beautiful words you say about me. I am sorry to hear about your friend who has Asperger’s syndrome. Unfortunately, it is very common for many people with Asperger’s Syndrome, male or female, to be looked down upon in high school being teased or bullied. I am happy you are friends with this person. In any case, I have seen the world to be a very cruel place to live in many times. It has made me feel stronger inside as an adult because of my past experiences. However, there are a few Adults who sometimes look down upon me. We just have to learn to ignore it and know those people are ignorant. peace, J
(Alright that is the mailbag for today!)
