A quote from Matt Haig’s Reasons To Stay Alive,
There is no standard normal. Normal is subjective. There are seven billion version of normal on this planet.
Haig’s book is intensely personal. But this quote works on an intrapersonal level too.
If we accept there is no standard normal, we can approach each person’s journey from one thing and to another, as bespoke.
As professionals, we’re always looking to make the abnormal transformation feel normal enough to take the next steps.
“Normal is always subjective” is a mantra.
