What Is Normal???

Inspired by a conversation I had with a good friend, check him out over at Scotties Toy Box lots of really good stuff over there, if you have a moment go over and show some love…

So… what is it to be normal? What qualities must a person possess within themselves which would be enough to fit the definition? Can normality even exist if we are all uniquely different?

Here’s an excerpt of a conversation I had with someone a while back, I’ll spare you the details of it all, but it revolves around the idea that I wanted to keep the friends I had before meeting her vs letting them go if there was to be a progression into a relationship, longer story short we don’t end up making it due to a lot of things, but I guess those are for stories later I suppose…

I know you’re thinking what does any of that have to do with normality well as it was told to me it’s what normal people do, letting friends go for the sake of something more with another is how a normal person thinks, i’m not into arguing if such an action is rite or wrong as I feel with that it’s a matter of personal opinon…

This idea though that something is what a normal person does is very dangerous I feel, in the sense it perpetuates the idea that there is an ideal that we as humans have that needs to be met…

In another excerpt from someone else, again I will spare the details of everything lol, what worries me is near the end where we see “its how I am. Its how most people I know are.” 

I’m all for independent thinking, if someomes thought or opinion is there own then I respect it, for it to have greater meaning only for the the fact it’s how most people think, well that’s where things get a little iffy for me…

So what do you think about it all, does the idea of being normal exist, if it does then what is it really, for me personally I think normal is a state of mind, there are no rite or wrong answers when it comes to how life should be approached, it’s all manifested within in the person, theres no way that one could really expect everyone to think the same, what we have here are examples of just that, a persons thoughts personally on what they feel is accurate, some may say that majority rules but I can’t say it applies to ones thinking it just can’t…

Just my opinion really, but like I always say I don’t have all the answers, the thought of an absolute way of thinking or personality to have to be “normal” scares me in a way honestly should it exist, it always begs the question of what is the person thereafter if they do not meet the status quo, just something to think about really…

Thanks for reading if you got this far, now off you go to enjoy some the more normal bloggers…
