Normal, what exactly is it? How many times have you been told that you were not normal. Maybe, you have been told that “you are weird.” For some, even that they are crazy. Why do you think that these claims are being made? Well today I would like to help you to understand that you are normal.
Normality speaks to the masses. That group, the majority group that conforms to a particular behavior or idea. This is societal norm. Nothing is wrong with this concept except we can use it to tear others down and destroy them simply because we are short sited and very limited in our view of the world. Then there is individual norm.
For you the individual, normality lies within you. Each of us has our own normality. Know that what is normal for you may not be normal for someone else. With this idea, your normal will be comfortable and peaceful for you. You were given a set of talents to come to the planet and in using those talents, you can be misunderstood. The fact that you are misunderstood does not make you crazy or non-normal. Those that are supposed to understand you will do. Not every dream or idea is for all to understand. Understanding may come later or not at all for some as they are not a part of the blue print of your life. Remember, Socrates was misunderstood and we study him today in philosophy and consider him great. Consider yourself a Socrates.
Be deliberate about being your own normal as normality must have context. Whose normal and for whom? We cannot all be painted with the same brush. We are all unique individuals. We are all on our “Life is a journey” pathway. As you think about your life right now, can you say you are normal? Check below or leave me a comment to let me know.
