Im wondering if anyone has tips for learning to unmask? I’ve masked most of my life and I feel like I don’t even know where to start

    I think the major step is doing what feels right at any given moment. Don't wanna make eye contact? Don't do it! Other than that you can look at other people's experiences (try # ActuallyAutistic on different social medias!) to realise what specific behaviors you have that you've been masking.

    Baby steps. Start at home, or when you feel safe/ comfortable and take it slow. Be proud of your accomplishments, whatever they are. You got this.
