What’s “normal”?

Normal. “Normal.” What’s “normal”? Like many terms we hear “normal” is used in several contexts. Some are good, while others tend to exclude or isolate. Certainly what is normal for me is not the same as what is normal for you. I’d like to think that our lives are not so different that we don’t have something in common. We “normalize” things all the time. Commuting, exercising, cooking, feelings, etc. The reality is that none of these are normal. Each are unique to the individual. Some may be shared with others but while we may go out to eat together we don’t usually eat the exact same things. By treating each other as unique individuals with respect we no longer need to use the term normal.  Instead we can celebrate our individuality.  What’s “normal” to you?
