Seriously, Who Wants To Be Normal?

Thought Catalog

“Who wants to be normal, anyway?”

If understanding oneself is hard enough, putting words to that slippery, elusive substance is nothing less than a Herculean feat.  A host of factors contributes to self-conception and self-description – into how we package ourselves into language.  One rather fun way of comparing perception and reality is through the medium of online dating sites.  In that context, let’s examine the use of the word “weird.”

As adolescents, many of us railed against the notion of being “normal.”  To be normal implied abandoning one’s individuality in favor of a soulless cubicle or loveless marriage – or whatever depressing image we associated with our parents.  To be normal was high treason against our complex, inimitable snowflake souls that would not be hemmed in or dictated to.  As we grew older, many of us learned that our most profound and original musings belong to other people, that…

Slow down, smell the flowers;

Sad isn’t it, how the N shape is always lurking around the corner to kidnap you away from your date with the U shape? 
Sad isn’t it, how as you grow up, you gradually locked the chest with the fun and kiddish self inside, with the serious self invading your entire soul?

Let your hair down for a while, won’t you? What’s the point of being serious for 24/7, is it going to get you anywhere in life? What’s the point of being so serious, if it cannot bring you a simple smile?

Maybe that’s why the world is cruel in a way. Sad, isn’t it?
