What is normal but a label we use to limit ourselves and our fellow human being? What is normal but a ‘box’ that’s meant to keep us all separate from one another, and separate from our own humanity?
What is Normal?
We live in a world that encourages us to “value people not for who they are but for what they produce or what they consume. And the people that neither consume nor produce, they’re ostracized, shunted aside and they’re devalued. Hence the rejection of old people – they no longer produce and they’re not rich enough to consume either.
A society that cuts us off from our spirituality, that cuts us off from society by idealizing an individualism and by destroying social contexts, which our society does, which ignores our emotional needs is going to be a society that generates pathology.” ~ Dr. Gabor Maté
In this short yet incredibly powerful video, physician, Dr. Gabor Maté talks about the myth of normal and how this label is harming all of us.
