If "crazy" exists, does that mean "normal" does too?

      To answer the title? Yes!

      To answer the OP? Those who judge our actions. wink

        True Cagsil smile ..... and what's frightening is, the ones who are judging are probably closer to crazy than normal! smile

      Gnerally someone is considered crazy if their behavior is hurting themself or others, and normal if it isnot.

        smile that's kinda like the "if a tree falls in the forest and nobody hears it, does it still make a sound" question isn't it? I wonder if crazy people think they're hurting anybody .... or do they think they're behavior is normal for them?

    Why are you always reaching out for crazy answers? hmm

    Isn't crazy how those dating partners just seem to blow up in size in ways that defy their pic and how they expect you to overlook the fact that they were 10 sizes smaller when you last spoke? hmm

    How normal is that? hmm

      Just looking for answers Pearldiver ... not necessarily crazy ones. I hear people claiming they'rer "normal" all the time - implying there's nothing wrong with them; that crazy ain't never set foot on their doorstep ... just wondering if anybody can truly claim that.

      How about you? What category are you in?

    I think comparing my behavior to what is "normal" is the most destructive thing I do.  My shrink thinks so, too.  I criticized myself for years, because I didn't dust my bookshelves everyday, and scrub my floors once a week. I didn't do the things my mother did, so I thought I was wrong.  It is still a lot for me to handle, every now and again.

      I  hope you don't let it continue being hard for you to handle Davinagirl3. I went through the same thing. Definitely the blacksheep in my fam. Both parents and my sister educators in school systems; other fam and friends lawyers, dentists, all have some degree of some kind. I took my own road - beat up myself for it alot. You know what? I created a new "normal" for myself. Much happier. smile
      You hang in there ... and thanx for sharing
