Autism is Beautiful blog post:

It’s okay to have your own sensory needs. Be comfortable. Don’t force yourself to dress a certain way because it’s what the world expects you to be like. If you’re the most comfortable in yoga pants and a t-shirt, rock it! Most comfortable in tunics and leggings? You do you!

My little sister (who is smarter than me) said the hardest thing to do is be normal.  Which is very funny thing to admit given we live in a culture that plays lip service to self-expression and individuality while exhibiting and enforcing the polar opposite.  Yes sexual mores have loosened since the 50’s but everything else has pretty much tightened.
