Why it’s Dr Jekyll who drags me down

I think I should explain why Dr. Jekyll is my negative voice and Mr. Hyde the positive one when it seems like it should be the other way around. (See my latest race report for context).

Personally, I’ve always thought Jekyll was the jerk. He was too ashamed of himself to be himself and created Hyde so he could literally get away with murder. In my mind, Jekyll is not a nice guy. Hyde, on the other hand, knew who he was and did what he did and didn’t let anything stop him or hold him back. Ok, in the story he did awful things but I always remember that he only did them because they were what Jekyll secretly wanted to do but didn’t have the guts to do.

So for me, my negative voice is Jekyll and the positive voice is Hyde. I might be the only person this makes sense to but there you have it!
