Episode 7 — Be You, Baby 👍👊🌟
w/ Inder & Ish
Are we obsessed with being 'normal'? What IS normal, anyways??! It seems we've all fixated on this concept on being normal, whilst having neglected who we really are ourselves. However, the problem with being normal is... now, here's the kicker — that it's relative. It's relative to one's environment. It's relative to their upbringing, culture, education, workplace, country... Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.
Merriam-Websters defines normal as : "Conforming to a type, standard, or regular pattern". Are YOU being yourself? Are the decisions you're making truly YOU? Or are you conforming?? In this episode, Inder & Ish share their experiences of breaking the cycle of conforming to 'normal' and actively trying to be themselves — authentically and unapologetically.
