Have you ever been told by someone that something isn't normal? Who gets to decide what is normal and what isn't? Aren't we all surpose to be different in our own ways?If we were all the same and normal wouldn't that make life boring and uninteresting?

I feel the same way you do. "Normal" for me means doing whatever makes you happy, if you are okay with it, then fine. I don't think there really is a set "normal" because things that are normal to me might be abnormal to you. Yes, i do think that if we were all the same life would be horribly boring. Its the ways you are different that make you stand out. I appreciate the differences in people.

We are different persons with different perception and views and that make our lives interesting and lively. If we will have same point of view, yes, it would be boring and uninteresting. The different people's views are the spices of life. Life would be bland if there isnt differences. Normal for me maybe abnormal to others and what is abnormal to me maybe normal to them.

Normal is a relative term. What is normal to one doesn't mean it is so with someone else. I clown around at work so that the residents will smile. I have been told to act my age by a co worker. I commented to her to tell me what she thinks someone my age (57) should act and I would think about acting that way. Since I am happy in who I am and how I act I probably continue to do what I am doing. If we were all the same that would make for a boring world.

Nothing. Nothing is normal, nothing is strange. Everything is different. Being normal and being strange is just an illusion.

Nothing it's normal, because what you consider normal perhaps it's not normal for another person. We consider normal just what we do but not what other people do.
