There is something uniquely attractive about having villains in our lives. It makes us feel validated, I think. Like we are heroes fighting against some invisible evil.

I’ve been thinking this way about certain personality types for years. There is always that special someone that has to have a nemesis in their life, can’t be a superhero without a villain.

The problem comes when the “villain” is removed, there is a short-period, and I mean, very short period, of what seems like relief but then they must go on the hunt for another villain. It’s like an extreme version of inner reflection by constant comparison.

I think we all look over the fence more often than we should and judge ourselves by what others have or do, but this is just an extreme version, making the feeling of “good” from this much more extreme I guess.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
