Trying to be normal is the worst mistake you can ever make

22 Sep

Trying to be normal is the worst mistake you can ever make; I would rather sleep under bridges and eat food from trash bins for the rest of my God ordained life than fall into the “death trap” of trying to be normal.

To me, being normal means being contained; contained in my thoughts and contained in my emotions and living under some kind of subliminal socialistic control. Normal is when everyone dances to the same tune… in all honesty I find it much more entertaining when I see somebody dancing by themselves totally unaware that anyone is watching.

Normal is a life bound in fear, a life without faith, a life without risk and it’s the worst mistake you could ever make. We are meant to drop the idea of being normal and fitting in once we get past the age of seventeen.

No growth, no knowledge, no creativity and no adventure will ever be found in the ridiculous concept of normality. Bury the idea.

    It’s excellent that you think independently Geoff and honour your spirit and values.
    I suppose one can be ‘normal’ in the sense of abiding by basic societal mores or rules, eg like wearing clothes in public, avoiding harming and abusing people, following road rules etc. … but still, in ones true heart, and most meaningful actions, be free and happy, kind and unique even whilst playing the ‘game’ of life in it’s outer manifestationss…. Of course, for thinking people, the tension is always going to be, finding the balance between one’s own impulses and truth, and what is sane and reasonable in how we navigate life in the ‘world’ at large, that we happen to have been born into.
