Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you bought for work. You then drive to work, often by yourself and through heavy traffic, in a car that you bought to get to work. A car that you are probably still paying off, or, that you fought about with your partner to allow you to buy it, or, that you bought at the expense of fulfilling your children's needs, or simply to appear successful in your job. And then you may drop your child off at daycare on your way to work. You then get to the job you need in order to pay for the clothes, car, fuel, daycare and medical bills to handle the stress. This is the job you have, building someone else's dream, so that you are able to pay your mortgage or rent for a place you leave vacant all day for consecutive days so that you can afford it. Normal is having one place where you go when you want to worship (church, temple, mosque), another place that you go to when you want to learn (school, university, centre) and yet another place to go to when you want to earn (work); so three places in order to try and nurture your whole being. Normal is building linear relationships, particularly romantic ones, whereby 1 + 1 = 2 so that together you can achieve double or you may even 'become one'. Abnormal is being self-employed, an entrepreneur manifesting your own dream, living a 3-in-1 lifestyle, worshiping / learning / earning from the comfort of your home, dressed in your birth suit or pajamas or track suit, tending your child or grandchild, using ride-share or public transport when needed and building synergetic romantic and other relationships whereby 1 + 1 = 11.
