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 β€” 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 β€” authentically and unapologetically.

SHOWNOTES β€”

APPLE "THINK DIFFERENT' CAMPAIGN :

 
Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
— Rob Siltanen
