2Ti 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
There is always someone who thinks you are strange because you do not follow the crowd, adopt the fashions, the latest hairstyles, or seek after a career. You can be minding your own business or be sober-minded and there will be someone accusing you of being mentally unstable.
I would not dream of calling someone "crazy" and I am astonished when someone tells someone they are mentally ill. If you are ever the recipient of such rudeness, it might shake you a little and you start to have some doubts about yourself. The purpose of such a remark is to discourage you and shake your confidence in who you are, in your choices, in the way you live and in your beliefs.
Before you become too devastated by such labeling or name-calling, focus on the things that someone else is calling "insane": sewing your own clothes, dressing femininely rather than masculinely (I am speaking of ladies), cooking your food from natural ingredients, teaching and training your children, caring for your home and family, being sensible with money, content to be home, not participating in the vices of the culture, etc. Is this what they are calling crazy? People who cannot think rationally are unable to do these things. To call someone "mentally unstable" is just an attempt to de-stabilize them.
The reason I like this verse is because of the phrase "a sound mind." It is reassuring to read the words, "a sound mind." If you have e-sword on your device, how about doing a New Testament word search for "sound" and "mind" and see what the Word says about them. We must judge our mental health by what God says, not by some wild accusation.
