    Great analysis.

    There seems to be a bit of insecurity both directions: in he who over-emphasizes his uniqueness and in he who overly de-emphasizes it.

    But it is flat out hard to just permit ourselves to be different where we are different, and similar where we are similar. That realization, "oh, I thought I was different and I'm not", or "oh, I thought I was so similar and I'm not" so very rarely come easily and painlessly. I blame no one for having not made them any more than I can blame someone for having not faced death.

    Yeah well, blame don't enter into it, do it? There's no point using moral/value judgements concerning a person just being inevitably what they are. If insecure or unaware is part of what they are, there's no point judging them when the symptoms start showing. I mean you can analyze it and say it's pretty dumb, that it's a shame that they're doing that and that the smart thing to do would be to wise up and be themselves more, but if they don't it's through lack of full realization and that basically boils down to perceptiveness and wisdom... to judge someone as bad for lacking that would be like judging someone as a bad person for having a low IQ or EQ. Good and bad, moral shizzle, don't come into it, IMO.

    It never really troubles me to realize I'm "like other people" in some respect or other. In fact it's usually quite a relief, and I log it away as something that gives me a bit more chance than I thought I had of actually getting along with people lol

    Afraid he's already dead--the term was coined by President Warren G. Harding, actually, who promised the country a "return to normalcy", despite the fact that that wasn't actually a normal word. Oh, politicians.

    Not a common word.

    Research will reveal to you that it can be found in dictionaries.
    And it's not hideous. It's awesome.

    I'm thinking I'll try and popularate "normalness" 'cause it seems like a flinasticatedly cool word.

    Then you are merciful, and antidote to anyone who, through their own blame and judgment, comes to feel insecure. You are saying, in essence: there is no use blaming another who blames for lack of adequate knowledge or awareness. Good for you.
