    I often berate myself for having 'no social skills or friends'. I have Aspergers and ins it constantly hard to engage in most social situations that people would find easy.

    One of my Facebook 'friends' wrote to me when I was saying that I was lonely (I have censored out my name so I can remain anon.)

    'You have plenty of friends ****** you need to remember that. And you're so cherished and loved- see yourself through our eyes and then you'll see how great you are.

    Lots of love ****** xxxx'

    When they say 'see yourself through our eyes...', it really got me thinking - even though I feel a certain way about myself, can others perceive me in a different way?

    Is this a nice message to have received and do you think that I genuinely have friends/people who like me/people who think positively/nice things about me?
