How typical to be atypical
Typical is relative. Typical is based on multiple assumptions. Typical, assumes that you are like everyone around you and that I, being typical, must also be the same.
I don’t want to be the same. I do not want to be typical. I do not want YOU to be a stereotype.
I want us all to be our best selves, living our biggest dreams, living life to the fullest.
Typical insinuates that you or I haven’t tried harder, which we all know is not true.
Typical insinuates that you are okay being the 999,999th in a million, which we all know is not true.
Typical insinuates that you are okay with the status quo, which we also know is not true.
Typical is not a compliment.
Typical is not the goal.
Typical is how oppressors want us to feel.
Typical is ordinary, with negative connotations.
But atypical also has negative connotations.
So, the question is huge. How do we fit within the tiny confines between typical and atypical and still be fabulous? It is a lifetime of working hard, being the person you believe in, and inspiring others.
