We Have Normalised Too Many Abnormal Things!!!
“We Have Normalised Too Many Abnormal Things!!!”
Why have we, though? Why have we accepted these things, just like that?
Before we start on this mental exercise, I would like you to take a moment to examine what these words mean, to you as an individual, an individual in the smallest unit of society and in their general sense;

Some of the abnormal things, which I see, have been widely accepted include:
- Wasting food!!!
- Giving politicians a platform for them to talk!!!
- Foregoing our time of rest!!!
- Making the white man’s normal every body’s standard!!!
- Non-white people dying in war or any other form of violence!!!
- Abuse and disrespect in all it’s forms!!!
- Sticking to our old ways of living that encourage isolation!!!
- Wasting away to alcohol!!!
- The existence of billionaires!!!
- The existence of ghettos!!!

I invite you to look hard and ask yourself, “We Have Normalised Too Many Abnormal Things! Why? ”
Then, add three things you consider abnormal, that have been accepted:
Your First Time
The Content We Don’t Consume
DO I SELL MYSELF SHORT?
The Truth Vs. Your Honour

This is so true! I absolutely agree with this! These days there’s a lot of things that has become normal but it shouldn’t be.
You are so right! So many of these have become normal for every day and shouldn’t be.
I agree, we normalize so many things that shouldn’t be normal in the first place. I hope we obtain one good mindset someday.
I agree with you, there are a lot of things that should not be normal. Thank you for highlighting it!
This is very true. It’s like our standards as a society have reached the very bottom . Very sad.
I completely agree with you. Many of us normalise things that we really shouldn’t. A biggie is food waste.
Your post talks about a very serious point of our society that we don’t often care about which is we have normalized so many things overtime that shouldn’t be. Thanks for sharing awareness
All these are very true! Every single point you mentioned is very true…something “abnormal” that’s normal….
This is totally true and sad at the same time. Change and awareness is crucial for a better future.
That is that sad truth! We normalized those abnormal things that should not be normal, and I hope this should be changed in the future.
We do normalize so many things. I heard someone say once that the next generation of moral degenerates is one more low tolerance level away. Maybe I’ll make a Wordless Wednesday that says something like that today. I have mixed feelings on some things, but others I wish we’d take an ethical stand on.
Yes to all of these! We’ve normalized so my awful things, especially in my country where both sectarianism and racism are just accepted and normal.
I feel like most of society is numb to just about everything. People don’t seem to care about things any more!
I totally agree. We nowadays normalize things that should not be. But this time What we should be normalizing is that it’s okay to be yourself and just do what you love without being judged.
Not to debate, but I was listening to a trans person talk yesterday. He said that we need to stop normalizing everything. He said that he wasn’t normal and that trans folks are only .03% of the population. I totally agree! Just because something isn’t the norm doesn’t mean that it’s bad or wrong, but it also shouldn’t be the standard for everyone else!
I completely agree with you! Sometimes it makes me wonder what all we need to accept and is anything abnormal
I agree with you and there are many things that I am not happy with. Foregoing our time of rest is just sad that it has compromised our health. We should realize that working so hard without rest is not something we can be proud of.
All of your points are so very true. The world is a crazy place right now and I am scared for the future of my children. Praying for positive changes soon.
I have normalize so very many things. Perhaps it is time to reassess
I agree with all of the things you’ve listed. I can’t believe that humanity have let so much evil prevail! Hoping for better things soon

Totally agree with you on that one and it’s sad that we have normalized too many things. I hate how they normalized violence in general way of things
I couldn’t agree more. It seems like the more time goes by the more we seem to look the other way from things that we should be changing.
