Feeling different from others is unpleasant, it makes us feel wrong, excluded and inadequate. Often, when we come face to face with our insecurities, thinking positive or asking for help seems impossible, but we must always remember that we are not alone.
Nobody is Normal, the new campaign of Childline – a free advice service for children and young people in the UK – sends a positive message and normalises diversity.
Produced by Rowdy and Blinkink and directed by the stop motion animator Catherine Prowse, the frame-by-frame video captures the different struggles children experience as they search for their place in the world.
To the notes of Radiohead’s Creep, Nobody is Normal reminds us that being sick is normal and natural: you have to talk about it, seek support and enhance your uniqueness.
“Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
You’re so fucking special
I wish I was special”
