“You and I both know being conventional is overrated.”
― Rebekah Crane, The Upside of Falling Down
We spend so much of our lives in a never-ending quest for normal.
So much of how we spend our energy is taken up by this pursuit — comparison, envy, jealousy, desire. All of it boils down to a bone-deep longing to be like the people around us.
The people we feel like we’re on the outside of.
And Rebekah Crane is right, you and I do both know that it’s overrated. It’s all overrated.
So why do we want it — whatever it is we want — so badly?
What is the one normal thing you want. The one thing you wish you had right now, that it seems to you every one else already has? Is it overrated? What would your life be like if you could just let it float way.
