"Oftentimes, people tend to overlook what is right and true just to satisfy their own selfish desires. There are people who create their own stories of martyrdom and heroism to exaggerate their qualities that they deem admirable even though the truth is, they are the most shallow and materialistic beings that ever roamed the earth. Some refuse to see the bigger picture so that they can convince themselves and fool others into believing that they are the people they’ve always wanted to be, not knowing that they have become the monsters they never thought they will become. " - C. Catindig
May this be a metaphor!
