We’re all bad in someone’s story

Growing up we read fairy tales that had happy endings. However, those happy endings included defeating some kind of villain. We were brought up with the big bad wolf concept. Then we have all these superhero movies that have a grand, larger-than-life villain. We’ve been exposed throughout our lives to these bad people. And, yes there are evil bad people.

While we grew up with all sorts of stories, we also came to realize (or many of us did) that we have our own stories. Our lives are also narrated.

As such, we have our own big bad wolf to highlight. Furthermore, we ourselves may be cast as tbe big bad wolf in someone’s story. Sometimes we are to take that personally and try to address it. Other times, we are just going to be typecast into such a role just because of who we are. Once you come to realize this, your mental health will not be as readily impacted.

  1. Interesting, we are not in control or able to manipulate much in our world, yet we often end up feeling sad or angry over outcomes, as though we hold responsibility for the process.
