The Villain of the Story.
When we read comic books, watch movies, and read novels, it’s usually pretty easy to pick out who the villain of the story is. The truth is though, finding the villain of the story you are apart of can be more difficult to find. Could the villain be the person who bullied you, the person who has committed millions of horrendous crimes and has killed people, or even worse, are you the villain of this story?
History books talk about notorious figures from our pasts who seems to fit the criteria of villains through their actions that has ruined peoples lives. Media outlets always seem to have some new story to talk about describing sad events highlighting the destruction humanity can bring. And we have developed our own opinions on who we don’t like and sometimes even consider to be our enemies.
I may even seem the bad guy to have the opinion that there may not even be any villains in this world, especially when we don’t need to look very far to see the darkness and evil that surrounds us. But I’m starting to see how we all grew up believing and learning different values. How even those most ‘evil’ people in this world maybe didn’t have the same opportunities to learn what I believe is right and wrong. So maybe there are no villains in this story, maybe we are all villains, or maybe we’re all just human trying to find our way in life, hoping one day we all figure out what the right path is.
