Something To Ponder: About "Normal" People


Those you consider normal are only normal because you don't know them very well. Be at peace with who you are, what you have and where you are.  Especially when you feel less than... or not as good as..., etc.

Try not to compare your life with others. They have troubles you are not aware of. Yes - even those people who seem to be so poised, so... normal.  Just because they hide their troubles and issues doesn't mean their lives are any less challenging than yours. Trust me, they have some crazy things going on over there!

There is no such thing as normal. Normal is an illusion. It doesn't exist. Every single human being has his or her own unique quirks and idiosyncratic nuances. Accepting ourselves as we are is the first step to feeling truly free.Isn't that what normal should feel like?

Maybe we should replace the concept of normalcy with authenticity. After all, isn't being authentic so much easier to define? Isn't that just being who you are? Your real self?  

Wouldn't we be serving each other better by striving to live authentically rather than focusing on a misconception based upon what we believe to be normal?
