As I sat there staring at the paper I could feel it drip from my eyes, hands, ears, and mouth to the floor , there was nothing I could do. And I liked it. I love the feeling of being different, it fills you with power unbeknownst to humanity and the people that follow the social norm. But if you are to fall to deep, like I, you feel something start to change. You feel so much more than yourself, or anyone for that matter, and really start to realize that there is no need to be afraid. Sanity is normal, and normal is holding humanity from its greatest potential. We can’t all be normal because if we all are, then that means all of our progression in society has all been for not, and we can no longer progress if we are all thinking the same as everyone else. You gain the ability to look at everyone for their positives and you get to do all the things you were afraid to do because of what people might think.The definition of sanity is the ability to think and behave in a normal and rational manner; sound mental health. But who decides what the definition is?, What is rational or sound mental health? Society does. This is not a revolution or revolt against society or normalcy, because then this would be the new normal. This is a choice for the individual to let go of their sanity and be able to embrace what truly is the world, an insane and always changing place that should not be looked at the same by everyone. As I let the insanity in I could really start being the person I want to be. As I let all the insecurities and problems of our society drip down and out my body I became the real me, one that was not held back by what society thought of as “good”, “bad”, “proper”, or “correct”. Is insanity good or bad you might ask, well that is for you to find out and for the individual to embrace.
