I am sure you have heard the quote "You are special. Just like everybody else." It seems like a very simple and easy to understand line but I guess only a few of us have thought about how it applies real life.
After a series of events, I asked myself, "Is normal really that bad?"
I thought about it for a while and finally the answer was a resounding NO!
Ofcourse, like almost all things in life, opinion on this is subjective. I know a lot of people who don't like normal.
The answer I get is, "Its boring." or "Variety is the spice of life." "Why be normal when you can be interesting?"
WWE fighters are not called stars. They are called superstars. Actors/Actresses don't aspire for star status. They aspire for superstar status. Just being stars is not good enough anymore. There will be a time when being a super star will also not be good enough. What then? It's a never ending cycle.
In a world where everyone is trying to be 'different', normal becomes interesting.
I like normal people. They intrigue me. Because "To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest achievement" - Ralph Waldo Emerson
I am not sure I have been able to express myself properly enough to drive home the point but I guess you can all figure out what I am trying to say.
One song that can express this kind of a 'not able to express myself feeling' is "Jo Bhi Main" from the movie Rockstar.
"Jo bhi main, kehna chahun.
Barbaad kare, alphas mere" :)
