Why be normal?
This statement was on a bumper sticker and it caused me to reflect on who I am and what I am willing to expose of myself. Society has taught us the do’s and don’ts of getting along with people. Sometimes we stay within the boundaries and other times, well we just want to be ourselves. Because being our self is a good thing. Staying grounded in what you believe, what you stand for creates more peace within than compromising to get along, to be normal.
Why be normal? Who’s to say what normal is? Certainly we are all cut from a “different cloth”, so why settle for what someone else thinks normal is? Find yourself and define what is right for you.
As Oscar Wilde says “be yourself everyone else is already taken”.
