People Reveal The Things We Should Stop Normalizing

There are a lot of things that go on these says that we all just consider to be the norm, but maybe we shouldn’t. Have you ever questioned why we all think certain things are normal? Well, some people are, and they are speaking up about it.

It all started when someone on Reddit posed the question "What's something we need to stop normalizing?,” and plenty of people had specific, and very valid, points to make.

Things we should stop normalizing include:

  • "Bragging about getting less than six hours of sleep."
  • "Coming to work sick. People tend to get praised for that, but they are in fact just endangering others to get sick as well — and in the end, it costs the company more than if they would've just stayed home."
  • "Working while on vacation. You go on vacation to relax and enjoy yourself, not to try to fill out spreadsheets and deal with work bullshit in your hotel room."
  • "Having an opinion on everything. It's OK to say, 'I don't know enough about this to have an opinion.' People seem to have some strong opinions about sh*t they understand very little about."
  • "Alcoholic mom culture. No, you don’t NEED to bring wine to your daughter's soccer game. It’s not quirky. It’s awful."
  • "Filters that change the shape of your face to fit a beauty standard. Kids are growing up with an even more distorted view of what they should look like than previous generations."
  • "That anything is possible if you try hard enough. Don't get me wrong — a lot is possible, but not everything. There are factors beyond ourselves that determine our success. The best we can do is to give our best and be happy that we've done so."
  • "Taking pictures of strangers without their knowledge and posting it on the Internet. It's toxic as f**k, and it wasn't that long ago when it was seen as creepy."
  • "Throwing cigarette butts on the ground."
  • "Bullying. It's absurd how society will frame it as a 'stage of your life,' rather than supporting individuals more, so they know how to deal with it, especially academically. Still overlooked majorly."
