The sense of normality

It's too easy to lose the sense of normality. We often think what we're used to do/see or what many people are doing/seeing is normal. If others do it, you should do it too so you're considered "normal". On the other hand, you want to act differently but you feel ashamed or you're afraid of what people will think about you, so you end up with doing like others. I don't like this concept at all. I'm the one who loves reflecting and giving value to things by myself and caring less about others' comments. However, it's not that easy because you want to avoid complications or bad experiences, so you just agree with others.

This isn't intended to be a complaint, but I just would like to persuade all of us to question ourselves more often if what is considered normal is "really" normal. The world is becoming weird, more people are going insane, isn't this perhaps because we're losing the true sense of normality?
