What is normal? What defines normal? Considering that there is over 7 billion people in the world, all born with different features, different thoughts and different “flaws”. What is normal? Is normal the same as striving for perfection? Unattainable? Or is normal a squared box which society want us all to fit inside, yet some of us simply can’t fit into it? It seems like no one really want to be normal but still we all strive for perfection. But isn’t perfection yet another box they try to force us into? “Be like this or like that, but never just be you!” It’s such a cliche to say but it’s hard being yourself in a world that is constantly trying to change you. Yet what is normal for me is far from normal to you, does that make my normal less than yours then? Or are we perfectly imperfect in our own way. I’ve mentioned this before, but people put labels on you, or put you in a box and when you break out of their “norm” people tend to not care for you the same. Because you are confusing them!
I believe we all have the ability to do great with the life we have been dealt, it is only our own fear and others judgements that will restrain us from achieving our lives mission. “There is nothing wrong with being normal….” They say, which actually means “…as long as you are normal as I see it”. No woman is the same, just like no man is the same, yet you can hear people say “you’re just like any other woman/man”. Just stop, stop judging each other and comparing each other. You should rather encourage each other to be who we truly are at heart. Get to know people and try to understand them. Let your resentment and fear go. Let your own light shine while you let other people shine with you! Because those who matter won’t mind, and those who mind don’t matter!
Break out of the d**m box…
