I’m not usually one to go into being mean or being angry with anyone but if you could write a note to someone you are angry at, what would it sound like? Would it hold bitterness, cussing, anger or sheer disappointment?
I believe if I was to write a letter it would be brutally honest. It may instead be something about picking out the faults they’re so afraid of admitting and shoving them in their face. In a way, I may be mean but in another way, it would most likely be a way of me giving them that last push in hopes that they can accept their weaknesses. As a human, we all have weakness, and that’s okay, that’s what makes us different. In order to become something amazing, we need to grasp out weaknesses and accept them, and on top of that, we need to strengthen our strengths so that our faults aren’t as big as a deal. For those who haven’t accepted your weaknesses yet, I realize it’s hard to accept those things. In doing so we open up a new doorway to something better. A better you.
As a person who is good with words, I realize that I can have quite the impact on someone. I also realize all people learn different. Some people can be told something and will think through it and find their own truth in it. Other people refuse to see the truth even if it’s in their face. Those people tend to cause problems, they are usually so insecure about themselves that they go out of their way to cause drama, they purposes look for attention of any time whether good or bad, just so long as someone is looking at them. For those type of people, as mean as it sounds, I believe they have to experience something brutal in order for them to accept their faults. In most cases, that ‘brutal’ moment is when their friends leave them because they are sick of it. You can only take so long of trying to help someone before it has become so much of an inconvenience that you realize they are not even trying to help themselves. Maybe for a while they sit there and attempt to all but carry that person towards the new them, and if so, they have been fighting an uphill battle that has coated in oil and they just keep sliding back down.
To those people, I give you props; you’re doing everything you can. I have been there. Eventually you are faced with a tough decision, you are tired, and you are exhausted. They have strained you so far you can barely breathe and finally you are left with no choice. You give them one last chance, they still do nothing and you have to leave. As you leave, as you decide on this, you realize that you have one last chance to really get through to them, and that would be to be so mean you force them to accept that part of them, even if it’s by insult. You realize you will become that monster, but if you really wanted to help them, you would go to that length. Slowly you summon up your inner demons, you find everything you can to get mad and … and well, you let it rip.
Leaving at that moment, you realize that you have become that villain but for some reason, it does not feel right. Sure, you may have hurt them for now, but later down the road, those insults will lead the way towards acceptance. If being a villain means that I can help people, well I suppose I am quiet the villain.
The question is, if you were that villain, what would you write?
