Nobody Is Normal

posted by Jason Kottke   Nov 12, 2020

When I think back to my middle and high school experience, I always felt weird and out of sync with everyone else. I was comparing my insides to my classmates’ outsides and — surprise! — I didn’t measure up. It was only later in life that I realized that this was a universal experience that continues for, as far as I can tell, most of your life? This short promo video for UK youth support hotline Childline (with a Radiohead soundtrack) shows that feeling different is a common experience and urges kids to reach out for help if they’re feeling isolated.

There is nothing wrong with being different from other people. But if feeling different is making you feel isolated or upset, then there are things you can do to feel better.
