Why Perverted People Make Friends So Easily

Humor me please, and understand when I use the word perverted the def in this context would be someone who has no sense of ethics or morality.

I’ve never woken up one day and thought, “Dang, I’d love to be judged today!” Or, “Can’t wait to see their faces when I admit I messed up.”

If I’m around a self-respecting person I wont start talking about the skeletons in my closet. If they say, “How was your week?“ The words, “Oh, well, you know, I’m dealing with an addiction,” are not going to come out of my mouth, if I was dealing with an addiction. I don’t want to feel like I’m less of a human than they are. And some people appear pretty perfect. That’s hard to compete with.

Perverted people are going to make friends easier because when you’re around them you don’t feel like you’re below them. They wont judge you because…well, that would be hypocritical of them and chances are, they don’t care.

There’s a line in an Evanescence song that goes…”Always find my place among the ashes…” So, no matter what happens, if I take myself down to where the perverted people are then a part of me will feel like it has found its place. What part would that be exactly?

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?---Jeremiah 17:9

That part, I suppose.

Conclusion: “Perfect” people are usually more human than we think, and understand better and tend to be the ones who really end up caring (in my experience), but it would help if we could see that because if not, our tendency is to go down hill where we know we will for sure be accepted and not judged.



  1. I love this one. Nobody is without a place where they can empathize with the like-minded, but the commonalities should be in strengths - not in weaknesses; and the strong should help the weak.

  2. LOL, Jeremy, you're such a button pusher. The last time I got together with a group and we stood there talking about our strengths I really walked away feeling encouraged. I knew I was not alone in my strengths. What a relief.

  3. My dear, excellent post as always! I think there's quite a bit of truth in what you say... and I'll have to remember the essence of this post in my future interactions with various folks. :)
