Not normal is the new normal in many respects. More and more, I am happy to hear people asking, “What defines “normal” anyways?” Two years out from my explant surgery (as of yesterday), I can honestly say the concept of “normal” has been completely turned inside out for me in recent years. We are made to believe that certain socially accepted ways of being, doing, looking and acting will bring us happiness and wellness. It doesn’t work that way. Feeling well on all levels starts from within us, and in my opinion, we feel best and most free when our external actions are an extension of our own unique inner world.
