Everybody Ain’t Crazy


What do you think when you hear the word crazy?  Well, I often think that this word is used irresponsibly causing labels to be placed on people who do not deserve them.

I have come to terms that there are four kinds of crazy:

1)  Conditional Crazy – meaning you have a condition and you require medication to manage the condition.  No shame in that – do what you need to do to be well.

2) Wild and Out Crazy –   chilling with friends, being funny or silly.  Okay, that’s cool.

3)  Horror Movie Crazy – okay this is the kind of crazy where you are just out killin to be killin folks and straight up causing fright and horror for no good or apparent reason.  Medication cannot help this, the trauma caused to others is your medication, except for instead of Penicillin it is more like cocaine, LSD, and crack all combined together.   This is just demented and straight from the pits of hell crazy.

4) Circumstantial Crazy – now this I know about!  Yes, me!!!!  Circumstantial crazy is when you are in a situation that alters the way that you normally act. This is usually a highly stressful, unfulfilling, unresolved environment or relationship that damages a person over time.  By the time the person starts to exhibit attitudes or dispositions, they have already tolerated well over their fill of “bull poopers”.

Have you ever watched those videos of people who have the office meltdowns?  Well I would safely guess that 99% of those are circumstantial crazies.  Perfectly normal folk, who just broke temporarily, sad but true.

So the next time you noticed something that is different from you, before you slap the crazy label on a person, take the time to see where they are coming from, and if you can’t do that….them leave them alone or get out of their way. 🙂

New Start:

The video in the previous blog happened years ago – I wonder if the guy ever lived this down? Or did this follow him into his next job, next relationship, next circle of friends…..just curious.It is funny how the wrongs that are visible are pinned to you forever, mostly by people who forget that their own sins are neatly tucked away in a closet. Everyone can change, everyone deserves a new start….will you allow it? Of course you will for yourself, but will you allow it for others? Just pondering tonight.
