First of all, thanks to Christian for showing me this really amazing web comic:
There are some real gems in there (and some swearing).
Anyhow, I often feel like we sort of trap ourselves based on our own ideas of conforming to normal. A common one I see all the time, and I fight against everytime I see it, is “I’m hungry! Is it dinner time yet????” Hi, if you’re hungry, eat something. I don’t care if it’s 3 PM or 3 AM. If you’re hungry, eat. If you’re tired, sleep. If you want a shower, take one. If you want to go barefoot, go for it. Make yourself happy.
The idea is beautifully summed up in the last line in this comic:
Don’t let yourself get trapped by conventions.
