86. Normal is so fucking boring

By 25. Dezember 2019No Comments

If you want something to be normal, then there is a benchmark it has been standardized on. If something has a norm, it should be the standard, something that applies to everyone.

Your life is not a concept on paper that everyone should like. It is unique and incomparable. Every life consists of millions of random collisions. No way is really predictable. There is no guideline for spontaneity. The attempt to want to live a normal life is the attempt to keep chance small, to control spontaneity. How stiff. How exhausting.

You can follow all the rules of the world and you could not have lived a normal life. Only a boring one, which would be a really abnormal way of living.

There really is no normal life.
