Dr. Gabor Mate on who/what is normal

You’re either left brained or right. You’re either normal or mental. Rather, it’s a continuum of both.

These things are artificial divisions constructed by a society that wants you to conform to a standard type of person and resist the one that you are.

The stigma that goes along with differentness makes you an outsider, yet these ‘weirdos’ are exactly the ones crazy enough to change the world. Said the American mathematician John Nash: “I wouldn’t have had good scientific ideas if I had thought more normally.”

Just imagine if your edginess and flaws were more accepted.

As Physician Dr. Gabor Mate explains in his interview, maybe we should make more space for those different to express themselves rather than hide in anguish.
