Normal and Perfect? What exactly are these states of being? Are you normal or perfect? I am pretty sure I am not either of those. I am pretty sure that no one I know is. ‘Normal’ and ‘Perfect’ are artificial constructs created by humanity to inflict pain and suffering upon others.

Some would claim that these are useful baselines for comparison, but these ideals are key to creating divisive and hate filled lines with which we separate the ‘normal’ from the ‘not-normal’; those that choose not to hide their differences from these models, and those that do. No one would truly claim to be perfect, but some will not mind the pursuit of such and as well as separating the chaff from the wheat in the oft times violent process.

We need to forget whatever this normal and perfect is, because it is not. It does not exist and remembering and referencing it only hurts people and ruins chances for people to feel free and happy with themselves and others. These artificial and non-existent states are a bane to peace in the world.

I want someone to list what is ‘normal’ right now. I bet that you will get as many different answers as there are people that are thinking of answers. Normal and perfect will vary from person to person and culture to culture. Do not force others to conform to your world view because your world view exists behind those neat little rose colored glasses in your head. The only normal people are the ones you do not know very well. Joe Ancis
