We live in a society where we’re continuously being scrutinized by others, anything out of the norms is frowned upon and there have been so many times that we wished certain things were a part of the norm.
Keeping in mind the same ‘ifs’ and ‘whats,’ netizens are sharing a list of things they wished were normalized and they’ll have you agreeing with most of them:
