8 thoughts on “A quote by Ain Eineziz

  1. I find this pretty funny as someone who has Bipolar. It also applies to everyone else who is found in a group whom they don’t know about.

    We put on the persona of being put together when really sometimes we’re not. As my Mom says, in bad times put on a good face.

    1. Thanks Maria. Yes I agree. We put on a front that all is well with the world, with ourselves but our reality is completely different to the front we put on.

      As your mum says, we put on a good face, because it’s easier. That way we don’t have to discuss or talk about how we really feel, or deal with those issues. I like this quote because it doesn’t take us too seriously.

  2. I admire people who are able to do and say what is truly in them, even when it becomes a burden.

    When you find yourself sacrificing too much to be normal and giving only half of who you really are, it gets boring and very unacceptable.

    1. Thanks Tim. Your first paragraph really resonates with me, because that is what I have always believed I needed to do, even as a child.

      I think we have come to sacrifice our souls because of society’s acceptance of the human condition, or lack of acceptance. Individually we fit into a stereotype of what society deems fit for us as we find ways of being accepted.

      I have never been accepted in that way, given what I’ve had to deal with over the years, so found my own acceptance and am happy with that.

    1. Thanks, yes I quite agree. What is normal to one person, is far from normal to another. What is normal and if we know what normal is, do we ever conform to being ‘normal?’

  3. I agree. This has always been kind of my life philosophy, and I try to live by it every day.

    In my opinion, to be “normal” would be what I consider weird. The terms are, honestly interchangeable. Life is more enjoyable when everybody has their own normal.

    1. Hi Lael and welcome to the site. Yes, what is normal to one person is ‘not normal’ to another person.

      I agree with you that life can become more enjoyable when we are able to accept each other’s normal. Over the years, ‘normal’ has become interchangeable and is different for each of us.
