We’re All Mad in Here

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. Artistic expression, philosophical epiphany, self-realization and autonomy exist largely, without social input, it’s that social shadow that tends to render us fractured versions of actual selves. Madness leads to worlds discovered, where within, society’s biased lights can’t reach, and in the unfathomable innerspatial microcosms of ourselves, is where our true personae, though mutable, exist in perpetuity.

    Fantastic entry, I need to quite remember this, the strata of social input and forced perceptional mutations makes me sometimes feel monstrous for not fitting into society’s puzzle.

  3. Insane? I reckon you have to be a little touched to be a writer. After all, you’re creating characters and worlds with your thoughts.
    Of course in the professions I’ve been in, psych evals are fun. For example. I put for a job with the Colorado State Patrol, and I had to come up to Denver and have a set down with a shrink. Oh, he did the ink blots, and all that nonsense, and then asked me if I was one of those people who strange things happened to. Now, I didn’t ask for a definition of the word “Strange”, but I get a look on my face, and then I said, “Honestly. Well, let’s see. That flying saucer from Venus hasn’t landed in my backyard recently, but that because the Air Force chased it off. And my dog stopped talking to me, but that’s because he’s pissed that I moved him to cheaper dog food. But did you know the security officer downstairs is really Elvis in disguise!”
    He smiled, and said, “Smartass. You’ll make a great State Trooper!”
    I looked at him with my best poker face and said, “No. I’m serious.”
    We both broke into laughter a few seconds later.
