Natural v.s. Normal.

No one is the same. It’s really marvelous and extraordinary that we are all looking for the similarities with ourselves and each other. People just remind you of other people right? What if I told you that it’s not right. But you see it isn’t wrong either. It’s natural. Don’t get that confused with normal. There is no normal, remember? It’s okay I forgot too.

Our natural instincts…

intuition, hunger, jealousy, protection, love

are quite different from what we consider normal traits now such as… knowing how to use a toilet, or an oven, eating with utensils. It goes further into protecting loved ones, and our actions to every reaction in life. As humans evolved we expect everyone we see to know these things.

Modern day marketing has become very effective in using these natural instincts we all have against us—all for their own profit of course. We can’t be mad they’re good at their jobs—too good for their own good— but in my opinion they’ve fallen into the trap too!

This, big bear trap of being normal… underneath all the layers of evolution, we are still wild animals in the flesh; can’t really say we’re blending in with the rest of nature.

Naturally, we look for ourselves in other people. Which makes sense when our brains are organizing the people we see into categories all based on how our past experiences changed the way our brain reacts.

Science says that humans are natural social animals with a desire to have companionship, and if left alone for too long it could end up deadly for the individual.

Isolation, depression, paranoia, disease, etc. If you believe… We are constantly creating our own meanings for this world we live in, and we really know nothing about it.

We have very educated guesses and observations of the world we live on and how our brains work, yet there are so many questions—century old questions—that will never have a solid answer. That’s the beauty of the absurd. There’s no solid answer to anything, it’s all open for personal interpretation!

We need each other to survive, to live. You think the government would be around if we weren’t? A better example is the media and how they feed off what the public wants. They post terrible things because deep down we want to see that, we want to know what’s bad out there. It’s rare we see good thing, because most of us aren’t focused on the good thing in life.

Can you focus on the good things?

Whatever makes you happy that is—not necessarily “good” to everybody. But can you?

Can you live with that?

Can you handle it? 

Even if it kills?

I am human, just like you. I have been around for 20 years and although it may not be a lot of time to some, it feels like I've been alive forever. To cope with all the things my life has given me; good and bad, I've always been a writer. Maybe I didn't know or necessarily want to be a writer, but I was always on the creative side, not really understanding how different I was from others; I'm really not that different from you. To this day I'm still eager to learn more about myself, to improve and grow amorphously. I want to use this fuel of constant self-discovery as the direct source of 'energy' that can create whatever I want it to, making writing for me a healthier coping mechanism than most I've tried in my lifetime. That being said, I believe that starting my blog, The Existentialist, (all thanks to Wordpress and Bluehost teams) I finally have the opportunity and creative outlet to unleash my passion for art; writing. The beginning is never easy, and it won't get much easier I am aware. I can only believe in myself and keep my expectations to a minimum; I like to believe I hold no expectations, but they seem unavoidable. To whoever reads this, I'm not one to care about views or reads, I won't encourage/pressure you to read my work because for me, the thrill really comes from just making a finished piece of work I'm happy with, regardless if it is read by others or not; judgement from others is what I've feared all my life. I can only encourage you to have an open mind as a reader and believe in me as much as I believe in myself to accumulate the courage to start showing my creative writing(art) to the world. Everybody creates things in their lifetime, I am just another one of those beings; whether you like it or not, nouns (persons, places and 'things') exist to teach us something about ourselves. There is always more to learn...
