I'm not sure what "normal" is.
But apparently, I'm not it.
Sometimes it hurts and I wish I were.
But let's be honest, being me rocks, I get to eat cool stuff and to think interesting thoughts, and I rather like it (except when I'm depressed of course)

Normal doesn't exist. It's a societal construction, a lie. Never feel guilty or ashamed of who you are... even though society nearly makes that impossible.

You aren't weird for liking to walk in graveyards. I love it. It's relaxing.
Don't worry about normal. Fuck normal. Up the arse with a thorny stick.
Worry about you as a person. You and what you like to do.
Now who's up for a walk?

Normal = average
Nobody is the exact average of any social group. Would you even want to be average? Why not be eccentric, or have some sort of stand out personality trait? Maybe it would be more fun. My experience in life tells me that everyone has some sort of problem, everyone has some sort of behaviour that atleast one other person would find unbearable, or not desirable, different or weird. It depends on who you comapre yoruself too, what is normal. If you are in a group of computer geeks and don't like computers, to them, you are not norlmal. But in a different social setting that might be considered uncool. Social society is complex and mostly kind of a waste of time, at times. It is better to pick and choose the people you would get along with, than try to fit in to something you are not comfortable with. Think about your fundamental passions and the kind of behaviour you want to do, and what sort of people also are probable to feel the same, then you won't have to get confused by all the hollow relationships typically encountred in schools, workplaces, where people get along for the sake of keeping peace (thats not bad either, but won't often lead to anything meaningful)
Some people really overthink their own mentality, some people never consider their inner thought, I have no idea wich one is more common, but thinking of it as normal or not is pointless, it is what suits you and your life, that is important to YOU. A good lesson I learned in life, was to be a little more selfish (without hurting others) as long as I can care for myself first, I can also help care for society and humanity in a small way.

Most of the time, I really enjoy being out of the norm. People have called me weird or crazy, sure, but usually I also thought they were weird and I didn't understand their interests and the way they reacted. But because there are more of them than there are of me, sometimes, when I feel down, I worry that there's something wrong with me, that I should try to change. I always end up deciding that trying to change what I am would be stupid because I LIKE what I am, and I like other people who are weird like me.
Sadly, I can't always choose the people around me. At work, at school, I have to talk to people who react in ways I don't understand: they aren't curious about things, or they talk very easily to everyone, of they make jokes I don't find funny. And apparently, they are the normal ones, and trying to be myself around them is too complicated and exhausting, so I have to pretend I'm like them to make things easier. But for this I have to understand how their brains works, and what things are okay by their standards, and I sometimes find it difficult.
Long story short, Being yourself is awesome but not always possible D:

There is no normal <3 Nobody is normal and nobody SHOULD be normal. So it's ok that you're not "normal" because such a thing doesn't exist anyway ^^
Tagath Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
that's what I'm starting to realize, yes :)
though if there is no "normal", there is still a majority, and it's almost the same sometimes^^;

There is a majority, however, the individuals that fit into that majority are all not completely normal. Just because a lot of people think a certain thing doesn't mean the individuals don't have their own odd quirks.

I whole-heartily agree with this. It's what I tell my friends when they say 'normal'

When my family visits the cemetery my brother and I play a game of who can find the most interesting names or longest lifespans on the stones.
It's a bit morbid, but we've been playing it since we were children.
Tagath Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
oh, I love finding interesting names too!:D (I have a passion for very old and odd ones, and cemeteries are the perfect place for those!)
