Will I Ever Reach Normal?
June 10, 2016 1:18pm CST
What is normal anyway? People think normal is being married, holding a full time job, and having 2.5 kids. For a lot of people – normal is miserable. Some days though...I really want to know what normal is like. I grew up pretending at normal. Sure we looked like the perfect family but behind that facade, I lived in terror. I knew that one misstep would mean terror later on. I never saw what normal was. For me normal was a mom who raged for hours behind closed doors and a dad who was an alcoholic. Now I don't think I will ever know normal because of living with a mental illness. Every day I have to take a handful of pills to keep my mood stable, to keep away depression, and to handle my extreme anxiety. Right now I can't even work a 'real' job because of it. I feel like normal is a goal I'm never going to reach.

you know what our life is challenging,you don't ha+ve to take the pill just to feel your normal why don't you go around and take a deep breath and tell your self i can make it.just relax,you know i have a friend and she feels her life is miserable but when i tell to go out and see the beauty around now she feels comfortable.it's easy for you to do your job if you take a relax
