Why Normal People Worry Me

Normal people worry me. They make me a little uncomfortable, let me explain.

I don’t believe many people are ‘normal’ and if they are that kind of makes them a bit abnormal in itself. However, a lot of people pretend to be normal and these are the one that worry me.

Firstly they worry me because I’m afraid that they are not being honest to themselves. They are repressing all their weird little quirks and foibles – the things that make us interesting and unique. Repressed thoughts and feeling often have a way of growing and developing into something darker, less healthy and much more worrying. They impact on peoples psyches and create serious behavioural problems.

Secondly they worry me because if they are being honest with themselves then they are not being honest with me. Psychologists recognise the fact that people who are portraying one thing and feeling another cause discomfort and distrust in those around them. They say that we are picking up on their incongruence – the fact that the inside doesn’t match the outside.

Thirdly I have found (and I am generalising here) that on the whole people who consider themselves ‘normal’ tend to be a bit ‘judgey’ on those who are more comfortable with their inner freak. They tend to lack empathy and understanding that we don’t all have to come from the same mould in order to be happy, healthy valuable members of society.

Lastly they tend (here I go generalising again) to be a bit dull. This dullness combined with a tendency to judge can take the wind out of the most creative and fun souls, leaving the world a greyer place.

So if we ever get to meet, don’t try to pass yourself off as normal.

Let your Freak flag fly.

I’ll be waving mine too.

  1. Part of the beauty of life is showing our uniqueness and all the little quirks that come a long with it. So I completely agree with you, normal people worry me too. I don’t blame people for trying to be “normal”. Often I find that they are simply afraid of being shunned and rejected. It makes me a sad more than anything else that they have to hide who they are to feel as though they can be accepted. But that’s society, n well I can only hope it can be more accepting one day.

    It all starts with one as they say. So Hello there 🙂 from another not so normal person.

    I’ve yet to meet a normal person, hmmmmm maybe weird is in fact ‘normal’?

  3. Insanity is a sane reaction to an insane world. If someone fits in to be “normal”, I believe it begs a question of the individual’s true stability in the first place! thank you for your time and effort!
