The other side of me

28 May 2013, 12:06

Scientists say each human has five minutes of madness, where we can't really tell what's happening or what we are doing.

It is also said that some humans have multiple personality disorders.

Based on these assumptions, I say each human has a good and a bad side, depending on which has more dominance over the person.

Seemingly happy people can turn to sadists over night, while unhappy people can receive a ray of sunshine into their lives that makes them happy and makes them smile once again.

Like a light switch, it takes one push to reach the limit of one's endurance.

Because a person is nice, caring, down to earth and jovial, it does not mean the person can't be harsh, heartless, proud or snobbish.

The tendency for a person to remain good is there, with God and the right dose of happiness and with some other enabling factors, the smiling face can remain constant.

To be bad is not that hard to achieve, just surround yourself with a lot of hate and negativity, and you are on your way to achieving bad things. Like they say, when good goes bad, they remain bad for life.

It is a wrong notion to think you can identify who is bad by their looks, because we all know looks can be deceiving.

There are lots of reasons people give for turning to the other side, "they just couldn't take it anymore, they were tired of being disappointed, they didn't have people who showed them love or cared for them... to mention a few.

I can't speak for others, but I have had a sneak preview of my other side, and its nasty. "I never wanna go down there", - I know many feel that way too.

So as much as we don't want to turn our friends into serial killers, rapists, robbers etc... Let's encourage each other, let's practice friendship in the real essence of it, above all let's show love, thatlittle  bit of love you show can help tame a person's bad side.
