We're all trying to be normal, whatever we think normal is.
Its sad, but the vast, vast majority of people think they're hopelessly different from everybody else, and suffer from an eternal feeling of isolation. We're constantly trying to be normal because we know that if we're normal, we're perfect, because we're brainwashed to think that everybody except us is perfect (or close to it).
This theory has tons of flaws... please, rip right through it. Hell, even I only slightly agree with it.
Exactly. That's why we feel so goddamned different, because we are and we can't accept it.
"Normal" is such a strange thing to strive for, but it's the goal for almost all of us (no matter what we define normal as being). I don't know why we're wired this way, but it seems almost all of us are.
we've got the the dictionary definition of normal, then we got everyone elses spin on it...
normal...is being happy? but no ones happy all the time so that'd be normal too...okay maybe normal is coping with shit cus thats pretty damn normal...
i do know whats NOT normal though and thats what i try to avoid...well most of the time
Personally I take pride in not being normal...I have a strong sense of non-conformity. I love not doing what is mainstream. To me, cool is being unique, very unique. I have a strong sense of Geek Chic. If I was just a conformist, I would most likely be happy all the time, but to be raped of individuality is being raped of all things that make you what you are.
All in all, it's just a better idea to be yourself. Look at wiggers, you can't tell one from the other. They all act and look the same. By fighting the system, you are making a much stronger statement than conforming to it. It's like saying "I have my own value system, and I am smart enough to figure out what is intelligent to follow, and what is really not. I know that what is dictated by society is not necessarily right, or helps mankind."
