I got this picture from a story I read on wattpad and you guys could give it a try if you want; I think you’d like this story: “Colourless” by Issy_Rose_ on Wattpad https://www.wattpad.com/story/68241406?utm_medium=org.wordpress.android&utm_content=share_reading&utm_source=android
So while I was reading, this quote caught my eye and I saved it. I’ve seen different teenagers worry about being weird, crazy and abnormal. They are torn between what they are and what people say they are. I saw tons of questions about this here and on Quora and I didn’t even know it had this much effect. So I’m gonna be answering this question generally.
I have said it overtime and I’d say it again, no one is normal and no one can ever be normal. If everybody was normal then this world would be so boring; same kind of people, same mentality, same mindset, same mind, same opinions, same ideas, same thing. If everything is white, then it’s white; if it’s black, then it’s black. Nobody is thinking different, nobody is creating something different, everyone is the same. That’s even more madness in itself, creating one thing repeatedly by the same process with the same outcome.
Normal is something usual, ordinary, expected… Not deviating from a norm or rule. How can you live like that?? It’s almost impossible if you’d ask me. Normality is not just a feeling or a thought, it’s a state of mind. A state of mind controls your mindset and mentality, it could either stagnate you or move you forward; it could either mar you or make you.
You’re not to be normal! Don’t let anybody tell you that… You’re to be different, beautiful and constantly changing. Normal is static, you can’t be static. It’s okay to be weird! It’s okay to be crazy! It’s okay to be abnormal. Weirdness and abnormality is a constant trait in me and my friends, they know it. I don’t walk with people who expects me to be normal, static and not changing. If you’re gonna make a change guys, you can’t be normal. Even Christ didn’t do normal things, he was far from normal. Why do you think the people were so much against Him? He was bold enough to shake their normal standards which obviously didn’t go well with them. ( I’m sorry if you think it’s not so right for me to bring Christ into this but I’m unapologetically sold out to Him. He was the one who ever loved me before anyone else ever did and He’s a part of my being so I can’t leave Him out.)
Guys, nothing is wrong with you. You’re perfectly okay. You want to be extraordinary; You want to be better; People just do something and it just doesn’t seem right to you, it looks odd and you want to change it; They tell you you’re acting weird but you just don’t flow with them, it’s not your fault. It’s because it’s who you are. Don’t let anybody tell you what you are, don’t let them set you into confusion and make you feel like an outcast. You’re not obligated to explain anything to anybody, explore yourself and your beauty. You’re You! You’re not normal, You’re You!; You’re weird, You’re You!; You’re beautiful and constantly changing, You’re You!
Cheers to Abnormality! Cheers to exploring your beauty! I look forward to a greater and bigger You!
