The Evil Within Us

    In every good person, it is not impossible to have a smidgen of bad. Whether it is jealousy or rage, there would be a hint of ugliness in everyone. Some people know how to control it, while others let it grow and gain control over themselves. There is also the situation where someone would let their failure turn into anger, and not the anger that turns into motivation, but the anger that turns into wanting revenge.

    It can also work vice versa; as the Yin Yang says, in every good, there is a bad and in every bad, there is a good. The best example for the Yin Yang, that shows both sides, would be Anakin Skywalker, or as others may know him, Darth Vader. Darth Vader, was once a young Jedi called Anakin Skywalker. Anakin started his training late, but was one of the best Padawans out there. If you’re not too familiar with Star Wars, Padawans are what they are called while they are training to be a Jedi Knight. Anakin was seduced by the Dark Side, and went against all his fellow Jedis, thinking that what he was doing would protect his loved ones. One thing he didn’t realise, was that he was the reason his loved ones were in danger. The evil took over and he became Darth Vader, and the Anakin Skywalker in him ceased to exist.

    Little did he know, there was some good left in him and non other than Luke Skywalker, his son, could realise it. Emperor Palpatine, Darth Vader’s master, was about to kill Luke but Darth Vader saved him and defeated the Emperor. Already weak, Darth’s last wish was to to see his son without wearing his mask for the last time. That was proof, that Luke was right, and that smidgen of light in him somehow saved the galaxy from the Empire.

    If you were lost in all that Star Wars confusion, it basically means that even the worst people can do the right thing sometimes. You may not know about that little bit of evil inside you just yet, but one thing could just make you realise it, from loosing a game to dwelling on that failure, it may just engulf you for either a period of time or forever. Forever’s possible — it happened to Adolf Hitler.
  In a whole, one should know how to put their bad side aside and if possible, turn it into motivation. Hate is a bad thing, and so is jealousy. Not to mention anger and every other emotion that relays negativity is terrible as well.
