It's just me, thinking out loud

Normal- an adjective which means usual; without any special characteristics or circumstances.

Weirdly Normal

But what’s normal for me may not be normal for you. Frappuccinos in the morning is normal for me but not for some. Others can sleep for 12 straight hours while for others that is too long. Desserts before the main course, mixing ketchup and gravy, dipping french fries on a sundae, all these eating habits sounds weird but for some, it’s normal. What’s normal for me may be weird for you, what’s normal for you may be weird for me. So, maybe we can say that everybody is weirdly normal, weird right? or you just find it normal? πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Normal or not, the weirdness, is sometimes what defines us, what makes us distinct, what makes us who we are, so why change what’s normal for you just for you to gain acceptance? Instead, choose someone who can be as normal as you are, or someone who can accept the normal you and whom you can also accept as the normal person that they are.

I am often bombarded by the question, “Why you don’t you have a boyfriend?”, many times I wished I know the answer and many times I wished I have the courage to answer, “Had I known the reason, I might have done something about it.” but instead, I just give the sweetest smile that I could. Just this morning, I happened to stumble upon a blog about the movie “All About Steve” starring Sandra Bullock and found the quote: “Why should you have to change to be normal? All you have to do is find someone who’s as normal as you are.” Maybe, that’s the answer, I haven’t found someone who’s as normal as I am, I haven’t found the one who’ll accept the normal me for me to accept the normal person that he is.
