Weird Community Of Twisted Ones

Imagine being in a community of people where social conformity demanded being genuine in the extreme, not fake.

twisted onesThe norms in such a community would be quite different than what we are used to.

In fact, we’d have to call this community “twisted” according to our standards.

In a community of Twisted Ones, you have to speak the truth about what you really want and where your deepest motivation lies. And it is never a mystery.

Discovering what you want is as simple as looking at what results you have produced.

So let’s say that you are overweight. In this community of Twisted Ones, your weight doesn’t matter – not in the least. You just cannot pretend that you want to be thin. You cannot say anything like:

Yeah, I really want to be fit, but I can’t seem to pull it off.

I’m going in a diet soon because I am sick and tired of being out of shape!

My family history basically dooms me to being overweight.

You must be direct by stating, simply, “I want to be overweight, so I eat too much and rarely exercise.”

As long as you are so honest, you have friends. If you attempt to be dishonest, you will be ignored and eventually cast out.

If you feel continually taken advantage of or unappreciated in your life, you cannot say:

No one appreciates me.

I can’t say no.

I have too much to do and it sucks because nobody helps.

Rather, you must say something like, “I love feeling taken advantage of, so I never say no or ask for help.”

If you feel like you never have enough money are are constantly stressed about it, you cannot say:

Everything is so expensive. I hate it!

If only I had a million dollars.

I can never seem to make ends meet.

Instead, you must say, “I am not happy unless I am broke, so I make sure to mismanage my money and pass on opportunities to make more.”

In a community of Twisted Ones, you would fit in and never worry about being accepted because you are – well – honest in your “twistedness.”

In conventional society, if you were to offer up such bold statements, you’d be initially laughed at. In fact, in conventional society, such statements are typically offered by comedians.

“If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they’ll kill you.”

-Oscar Wilde

If you insisted that your statements were true, your friends would begin to doubt your sanity.

Would you opt to be part of a community of Twisted Ones? Would this bring a huge sigh of relief? Or is this community nothing more than a band of misinformed crazies?
