One of our ATLAS members has shared their experiences about building friendships.
how ATLAS has helped me to build my confidence to make new friends.
I have struggled with friendships since I was 3 years old, this is due to my autism, anxiety learning difficulties and sensory issues to name a few. I found it very lonely and found it hard to fit in and make the right friends and to keep healthy relationships.
Going to ATLAS has made me trust and gain more confidence for myself. I have learned to make new friends and learned how to keep them.
I now have a lot of good friends to hang out with, we sometimes break up but then we make up again if we can and want to
I can make friends independently now. I used to have support to help me make new friends and to keep them. I remember that break ups and friendships get better, they get better for everyone.
