Coming to Terms with an Autism Diagnosis

Don't worry about the reaction

Part of the reason that people are so worried about telling others about their condition is that they are focused too much on how others will react. The thing that you have to remember is that you cannot control how others will react. If they don't respond positively, that is on them and not you. Putting so much pressure on yourself, especially over something that you cannot control, will just make you feel worse.
