Made to be


22 March 2018 at 22:10:02 MDT

Made this picture shortly after the other Oshawott digital waterpaint. I not only love this Pokemon, but I seem to reference myself as it often. Oshawott and I have a lot in common: We're different, odd, we don't fit in, and we've been picked on. But we can't help being what we were made to be.

Some years ago I tested with Borderline Autism. Living with this realization has felt weird, but it made sense looking back on all my growing up. I didn't think too much of it until it was brought up to me again a few weeks ago. Something about the realization that other people can recognize my borderline left me VERY self conscious of myself and my behaviors. I seem to be trying to cover it up, trying to act normal, but I keep slipping. I'm realizing more and more that I just can't help being what I was made to be, and I need to help other people to understand this.

    Hey man, Its best to go with the flow when it comes to this type of stuff. Im borderline Aspergers but i don't let that define me. Its just a part in whole me. Rock what you got and enjoy life. Also, Oshawatt was my starter in 5th gen as well. Samurott was fucking dope. Totally worth it :)

      Haha, thanks. I guess I'm just struggling with a bit of an identity crisis. Realizing that I stand out from others in the not-so-good way isn't easy to accept, especially when all I want is to fit in. I hate having people mad at me, especially when I don't mean to make them mad.
