Lately, I've been having a lot of deep thoughts. A lot of deep thoughts about a lot of different things. But one of the thoughts is about the word "normal." Ever since I hit puberty, this word has stood out to me. I want to be normal. That's what made it stand out. The desire to be normal.
But, yet, I have never been able to make myself feel normal. Before I figured out my sexual orientation or when I figured out I was a TB, or even when I found out I was a furry, I could never feel normal.
Now my question is, what is normal?
Conforming to a standard; usual, typical, or expected.
According to a dictionary, this is normal. But what is 'usual' or 'typical' or 'expected?'
With the way society is today, there are so many different forms of the word 'normal' that the word should hardly be one word at all, but an entire novel of words. I've heard so many people saying things like 'abnormal' or 'that's not normal' but how do we know it's not normal? What, ultimately, is the base for the word normal? How do we judge it?
In my opinion, normal neither exists, nor should it exist. Don't we all strive to be our own human beings? Strive to be separate from the human race but also together with it? Isn't it against our nature to want to be the same? If it is, then why do we have the word normal?
Just my thoughts... and I really hope I don't sound like I'm ranting >.<
