Normality is relative. It's based on perspective. What's normal to one person may not be normal to someone else. It's like how when you visit a friend's house for the first time. You are so used to a certain familiar life and certain foods and such, which is normal to you, but things can be drastically different at that person's house, even if it's normal for them. You may find yourself saying "that's not normal!" but to them, it is.

I classify most people as "normal". Unless they display an erratic behaviour or speech, which is usually distinguishable from normal everyday people, I classify those people as "eccentric".

Serial killers, necrophiles... I classify those into a different category. People who are good at what they do, I classify as "geniuses".

Normal, eh?

Well...you're going to have to die.

It's the only common ground every living thing has; other than that, life itself is an amalgamation of improbable cause and unusual circumstance.

Nothing is really normal anymore, and none of us are considered normal. All of us are weird in a limited edition.

Normal = slave of society.

At the very least, that's the "normal" meaning of normal.

Everyone has their own idea of what normal is to the point that the dictionary means nothing.

Basically, normal is indeed a thing.

"Normal" is just being similar to most of society. Society makes being different out to bad because they don't like things that are different than them.

" Normal " is just a word for me that people have defined and made up to mean something that should be the standard, but u can't define normal because we are all different and our normal is what we perceive it to be. making it weird or bad to some. Society on the other hand has made this word to be something we should all strive to be by it's own rules in order to have some sort of control on what should an shouldn't be done. Personally I would just be me and not even care about all this nonsense .

It's ambiguous to say the least. There will always be those who's interpretation of "normal" doesn't much our own and therefore we're perceived as "not normal" or vice versa.

Defining normal is very hard because at this point people are so diverse that it's really hard to define.
For me, to be normal is to be different.
