Do we villainize our ex’s or are they just as bad as we remember?

There is this guy who isn’t even a true ex of mine and if I close my eyes and picture him, I see his face with a devil’s goatee, horns on his head; I see the point of his tail behind his head and his pitchfork. In my mind this guy is the devil himself, there is no one more evil.

Now that some time has passed and I’m able to speak to him again without the urge to strangle him. I’m starting to notice some qualities I don’t remember him having. He’s really funny. What kind of devil is funny? He’s helpful. I know I haven’t been to church in a while but I’m sure helpful isn’t how the bible describes the devil. Could I have been wrong?

No. Sorry Mr. Devil I know I’m not wrong. The events that caused me to believe he was the devil are still factual. The question is do we villainize our ex’s or are they just as bad as we remember?

At some point people that have hurt us go from being real people in our minds, to being almost like comic book characters. We no longer see them as a human being with feelings. We see them as a super villain out to destroy our world.

So I guess we do villainize our ex’s but I also think they’re just as bad as we remember. After all the things they did are real. They really did hurt us; they really got us to the point where we had to turn them into monsters in our minds to move on. The thing we may have lost sight of is that they are still human. Or maybe we just blocked out that fact.

Don’t get me wrong I’m not suggesting we forgive the evil assholes that have hurt over the years, in my mind they deserve to be villainize. I’m just suggesting they may still be human after all.

Anyways my loves, I’m heading off for the night. Stay out of trouble

Love Always

The Honest Bitch
