Living Our Most Authentic Lives Matters
One of the questions I get asked the most as a therapist is, “Am I normal?”
Underneath this question is often a desire to fit in, to belong, and to know that we’re not alone.
And while it’s perfectly fine to be “normal” — whatever that is — it’s also perfectly valid to be outside the norm, living our most authentic life.
We want to know that we're not alone and that we belong but it's also valuable to be authentically us.
While we have far more similarities than differences, those differences are special.
Just because something is common doesn't mean that it's inherently better.
It's often healthier and more beneficial to be "abnormal".
