If You were a Character in a Novel, What Role would you Play?
Part Four – The Villain
There are two kinds of villains. One who is cruel to others and one who is cruel to themselves. Both are equally destructive and keep us from being the hero in our story.
I bet in less than a minute we can all think of a person in our lives who we might consider a villain. They are the ones who are never happy for others, who complain about everything, who think life is never fair, and are often manipulative. These types of people are toxic and are never fun to be around.
The important question to ask ourselves is, are we ever like that? Are we secretly happy when something bad happens to someone around us? Are we jealous? Do we deliberately avoid someone who may need help? Do we get our way by manipulating the people in our lives?
The other kind of villain, the internal one, can also be damaging, especially to ourselves.
How many times have you said to yourself, “You’ll never be good enough.” OR “You can’t do that.” OR “Why bother?” This kind of talk stops us from becoming a hero. It keeps us from reaching our true potential.
If you find yourself thinking like this get the help you need. Whether it’s relying on a support system, visiting a doctor, or even discovering something new about life that gives you a fresh perspective, make that step to get better. The sooner you do this, the sooner you can get on the path to becoming a real life super hero.
***That's something to think about. Is there anything in our lives possibly limiting us from being real life superheroes? Only you can honestly decide.
Maybe you can decide AFTER you take a look at this awesome follow up to the first novel (Fractured Light). Here is Fractured Soul.

What others are saying:
“I love these books! A kick-butt heroine and a hottie love interest, with a refreshingly original concept. Be prepared—once you start, these are hard to put down.”

“Fractured Soul is a brilliant sequel, exceeding even the remarkable first book in the series. It will haunt your every waking moment between the times you’re reading it, and it will stay with you long after you’ve finished. It’s an amazingly well written and engrossing story that I highly recommend—after you’ve read the first one, of course.”
—Cindy Bennett, bestselling author of Geek Girl and Rapunzel Untangled
