The longer I live, the more inclined I am to believe that "normalcy" is a myth perpetuated by fictitious media. Somehow, through television and other
media, we all grow up having a picture in our heads of what "normal" looks like, sounds like, thinks, believes, and acts like. And we assume that,
while we may not agree with or even want to attain that "normalcy," those who are "normal" are probably safe, secure, healthy, and happy because they
don't have to struggle against the grain or deal with social awkwardness, etc.
Yet, in all my years, I have yet to encounter this mythical unicorn known as "normal life." Every single person I've met, irrespective of
socioeconomic status or any other factors, has problems, challenges, thoughts and views that aren't in lockstep with their society or even local
social circles, family, etc.
So yes, you are "weird." But so is literally everyone else in my opinion. Because normalcy appears to be a non sequitur, at least in the sense we
usually think of it. If we take normal to literally mean only "that which is most common or prevalent," then yes, there are norms and people who could
be called "normal." But not in the way we grow up imagining imho.
In short... don't worry about it. Be yourself.
