I have spent time thinking about the word or the concept of “NORMAL”.
I have finally come to my own conclusion about “normal”. I researched it, read about it, and have realized that I don’t fit the description in any way, shape or form. I’m not sad about it. I am happy that I made my own definition for it and I am totally content with it.
Normal is definitely not what I am. No, I don’t eat worms, or wear hats made of tinfoil, but I am not normal. The people closest to me really aren’t normal either. That is where I found my definition…right there in my inner circle. And it’s going to be the very same place where you will find what normal is for you.
My Definition: Normal is whatever the majority of people in your life decide it is!! It’s that easy or that difficult. I have pink hair, tattoos, piercings, and like baggy clothes. Now, some of my people have some of those things and we like each other a lot. Some have none of those things and we remain good friends.
When I step away from my people, I stand out like a 60 foot statue of Pooh Bear. People stare, they whisper, they even point at me as if to say, would you look at that!! How dare she look like that and in public too. I dare because I can. If I didn’t believe how I believe, if I didn’t dress as I do, If I didn’t surround myself with like minded people, I would not be me. I would be someone else.
So, normal is whatever you decide it is. As long as you are being true to yourself, not hurting or offending anyone, then you are on your own journey of normal. Enjoy and smile!!!
