My daughter just asked, would you rather be weird or boring? It's a great question, because at the end of the day, they are our only options. There is no normal.
Weird or boring?
don't do what we expect
do exactly what we expect
fade into the background
mold into stereotypes
capitulate to labels
are afraid of any kind of criticism
The weird are uncomfortable. That's why we made a word to describe them and make ourselves feel better at the same time.
The boring are comfortable. That's why we like them and sometimes want to be them. But, seriously, they are so boring.
