A personal but stong point of view on normal.
Some of us think we know what normal is in actuality it’s a deception of what we were led to believe as we grew up. I believe there is many definitions on normal as some might be similar, we all were raised separately. In my definition of normal it’s “ being there to handle & take care of your responsibilities, just holding accountable for your own actions not passing “ the buck “ to someone else. Focus on the positive things & If having kids, make a positive environment for them to live in not getting them caught up in the webs we weave “. As we grow, we see things we don’t want to, or hear things we shouldn’t, feeling some kind of emotional pain & as a result of those things they have a big influence on our up-bringing points of view. When we experience things as a child we have to live with them forever & the nightmares we share can never be erased, unfortunately they play over & over in our minds causing us to think we are the messed up ones, when in actuality we did nothing wrong as a helpless child, but because our parents lack of better judgment we were put in difficult situations, there is no one really to blame, everyone has just been caught in a cycle & no matter who we are, ALL of us face some challenges & obstacles in our life & not all choices we make will be the right one, but we need to be more conscious of who we are affecting with our actions. I know I wish I grew up different then I did, but I didn’t, so I had to stop blaming others & learn new way’s to cope, sooner or later we need to make healthy decisions that have a positive affect on everyone we involve ourselves with. There is Hope out there for those who seek it & my response is “ GOD “ through Jesus Christ. He truly heals all wounds. Past, Present, & Future. When you feel like no one will forgive you He really does, confessing to Him & meaning it allows for a fresh new start, All sin & fall short of the Glory of God. Bottom line, sin is sin. Some just have worse scars then others from things we’ve seen or heard.
