mad“Have I gone mad?”
“I’m afraid so. You’re entirely bonkers. But I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are.”

Even though most of the times you don’t feel like your’re mad, you feel different. It happens to all of us. Sometimes we feel like there’s an invisible wall between us and the rest of the world. We feel alone, we feel different, we feel as though we’re not good enough. And it’s difficult to accept this. Most of the times, people simply try to find comfort: in their art, in another person, in aimlessly wandering through life.

Yes, we’re all mad, and yes, all the best people are mad. Crazy, stupid, eccentric in ways no one else can understand. We’re all uniquely mad. Beautifully mad. And there’s nothing wrong about it.

And there’s nothing more you could ever wish from life.

Be mad. Be different. Be yourself.

And the world will either love you or hate you.

But it doesn’t really matter, does it?

  1. but being different is not easy, sometimes you have to be willing to choose alone in-room instead of hanging out with the people

  2. I tell my 15yo son this all the time. Be yourself, don’t be afraid to stand out from the crowd. Follow your passion and be a bit crazy if you feel like it.

  3. “Do not fear to be eccentric in opinion, for every opinion now accepted was once eccentric” – Bertrand Russell

    Be eccentric. Be the change. Be mad.

  4. being different than everyone else is special, because there is not a lot of people who are different, for example: standing for what you believe instead of doing what many people do, like drugs. I know that being different is hard, but that is what makes you, you.

    I once heard that ‘the natural man is an enemy unto God’ (that includes everyone, both female and male, both man and woman, both girl and boy). Who wants to be an enemy of the weaker side of a team? because i want to be on God’s side.
