Everybody's weird


When we enter relationships with the illusion that people are
normal, we resist the truth that they are not. We enter an endless
attempt to fix them, control them, or pretend that they are what
they're not. One of the great marks of maturity is to accept the
fact that everybody comes "as is."

-John Ortberg in his new book "Everybody's Normal Till You Get To Know Them"

That is so true! Some people think they are normal, but I don't know anybody who really is...even me!

Having idiosyncrasies is what makes you who you are--I would have to say that I'm pretty "Weird."
