    Is Anything Normal?

    I haven't heard anyone describe themselves as normal.  Maybe because everyone I know is not in the normal range whatever that is.  To be free thinking, creative and effective in life is by definition being different.  Different means diversity a principle of a healthy living.

    A Question For All Time

    Who is to decide what is normal and what is abnormal? What if all that we assume is normal is really abnormal? Where do go to find the answers to all these questions? When do we decide what the right answers are? Why is this even an issue?

    What Is Normal?

    Is there really anything that is considered normal?  Doesn’t everyone think they are the normal one?

    Really, you hear the word all the time.

    But it's never defined, there is no meaning to 'normal'. It's subjective. Everyone is right in their own world, it's impossible to define that which you do not understand. But that's just my opinion.

    All my life, I was raised to spend money on

    things I absolutely needed. During childhood, I would ask my father if it were alright to buy a toy. Even with the 'ok' I would raise the pros and cons then at the end, I don't want it. As years go buy, I inherited my mothers, brothers and fathers pass-downs because I don't want...

    What Is Normal?

    There was a time that I thought that I was normal, but then I asked myself the question: "What is Normal?" What defines a so-called normal person? I have always felt that I was different from everyone else, and felt that I was not normal. But, isn't each human...

    What Is Normal?

    It's the question I've always wanted an answer to. How can you define normal? What's normal to one person may be abnormal to another. Having a smartphone may be normal to someone living in America but if you show a smartphone to a group of people that have lived in the mountains...

    What's the Meaning?

     Of the word normal? I mean what might be normal for me can be weird as hell for you and viceversa! For me, having a discussion about depression or addiction is normal for others just crazy! the things that i do might be normal for me for others just insane!

    Nearly Normal

    I don't have any idea what normal is but I believe it must be somewhere between really boring and really weird, but I am only guessing because I have no idea what would constitute being "normal". I have an idea of what "not being normal" is, it is not being cruel and...

    People live their lives bound by what they

    accept as good, correct and true. That's what they view as "normal". But what does it mean to be "good", "correct", and "true"? Every human being is different in defining those words. Is there a fixed definition to "normal"? Without anyone's views? The word "normal" is a...

    Out of curiosity, is it normal

    that your family rarely eats together during breakfast, lunch and dinner? We just eat at our own time? Is it normal for a household of 3 to be completely quiet too? Thanks

    Normative and Descriptive Normal

    For me the whole question of what is normal is a moral one. I think there are two ways of looking at normal. The first is what I'd call the normative way which says, these are the rules (the norms) and if you want to be normal i.e. acceptable to the community, you...

    There is no such thing as normal. It is only a perception that doesn't exist in the real world outside of our own minds.

    You Say Normal, I Say Deranged.

    I don't think normal is a word that accurately describes humans. I think the right word is phenomenal, or strange, or astounding, or... weird. Even the simplest things that you do without notice are strange! Like...writing. It's like you're torturing a paper PoW with some kind of...
