This is the eternal game isn’t it. Each one of us has a view and perspective of what we should do and what others “should” do. The reality is that normal is not a real thing. Just as common sense is NOT common, defining normal is dependent on hundreds of shifting variables and social environmental conditions.
Local local local… location location location. The only way to reconcile a particular view of normal is to narrow the conditions of conformity to specific local connections and communicate communicate communicate.
I understand now that I am not normal. I don’t think any of us is normal. I can’t even define what is normal for my own family anymore and neither can anyone else.
And yet… the reconciliation effort goes on and on. Every day is an opportunity to break the cycle and just accept myself and others as they are without comparison to some ridiculous standard of collective judgement.
Intersection of principles and practices...
