I just noticed that for a blog called “Musings of a Brunette” I don’t often write down my thoughts/musings -so here we go! I’m often told I’m a sunny, happy, positive, inspirational person – and I try to be. But everyone has their tough moments – I’m not always myself. It’s Life. I’ve noticed lately that it’s hard to agree on what’s considered “being normal” – some say it’s just like a cycle on the washing machine. Others say that there is no “normal”.
Adjective: Conforming to a standard; usual, typical, or expected.
As for me, I believe that everyone is normal in their own way – the same way that everyone is also a bit bipolar too. (I’m using the term loosely here – I am not making fun of being “bipolar” in anyway.) Does that make sense? Everyone has their days where if they haven’t had enough sleep, enough coffee, or enough food – they’re miserable, or “off”. Sometimes you just catch some people at the wrong time. But they aren’t always like that (hopefully!), their mood goes up and down – and it’s just a normal cycle. So the next time you catch yourself asking “Am I Normal?” remember that you’re normal in your own way. Whatever attributes, skills, imperfections, flaws you have, they are what makes you special – so embrace yourself. You’re beautiful. You’re Unique. You’re Normal.
I recently opened up about my disorder (bipolar disorder) to an old friend, and found out that we were quite alike and going through the same things. So it goes to show, that everyone is going through something and whatever it is – it’s normal! Don’t be afraid to open up about your disorder, or tough situations to someone (make sure you trust them though) you’d be surprised at who’s going through the same difficulties and you could be able to help each other out.
Hope you enjoyed my thoughts, this is totally something different, so I’m not too sure if I’ll continue or not? WDYT?
