What's Wrong With Normal? Probably A Lot! People seem to like being "normal," being like others. However, when we realize that our idea of "normal" may mean surviving with the "emotional education" handed out through happenstance, or from those who received theirs by the seat of their pants, we should have second thoughts about settling for normal. Normal golfers find themselves in the rough and sand traps a lot and, they struggle to break a 100. They never reach par and, if we aim for normal, we probably won't either. So, normal may not be the best path to reach emotional health and well-being. We owe it to ourselves to take a better one.
