Weird

I have noticed I do the most extraordinary thing to keep my personal belief systems intact.
I use “weird” as a filter.
Do you?

When something fails to fit in with my version of reality, or how I view the world.
If I choose.
I can simply discount it by using the word weird.
It almost always works every time, guaranteed.

If I believe all Ferraris are red and spot a green one..
“Weird” – I can even find support for my belief system with “look Gina, how weird is that!”
Note the exclamation mark…

Already decided.
Doesn’t fit my version of reality.
Not interested.
“Weird”

Problem solved!

Keep an eye on when you find yourself saying it.

See you on the other side of the looking glass,
