curse | | i love WEREWOLVES
To accept the curse or not. One of the first dilemmas many werewolves face is deciding if they want "the curse" or don't want "the curse". I'd like to point out that many who have accepted what they are, do not view being a werewolf as a "curse", but rather as a gift - and I'd like to address this in a later post. Here I'd like to address those who view it as a curse. The main thoughts behind those who think it a curse is that by them being a werewolf, they are endangering those they love because of the power they are capable of. Some also despise themselves because of the lack of control they may initially experience - they are incapable of controlling or stopping the transformation, the curses continue, so how can they ensure their loved ones will be safe when the transformation happens? Keeping the secret also strains relationships that they have to the point where they become loners the reverse of what they were - and, being a loner in itself is difficult and can take its own toll.
