heh. normal people are fuked up, if you are talking about the 'average' person, then there is very little difference. average people encompass all varieties of character and relationship faults as well. it depends on what your definition of normal is. but yes, people who are co-dependent on others or negative will drag you down. but people aren't always what they seem and life can be ironic. some people have learned to hide their good and compassion in a world that is not as much (general) whereas the average person may not need to as they aren't going to be as juicy a target to begin with so are safer. you can't get much from generally selfish people or squeeze blood from a rock. ironicly, the ones who tend to value me the most are more sensitive and evolved (not in the mainstream sense) people once they get to know me because i am more positive, sensitive and have higher ethics/ideals (hidden from most) than your average person.
