Well, "demon" (as I call him) was with me since I were a kid. That guy did teach me things. He's the first that made me believe in supernatural, he planted the seeds of me believing in my own abilities too. But I were too good to survive in the real world, so I needed a tough guide. He played the role of the bad, deceiving guy, which taught me things, but also caused me several problems including depression and antisocial behavior. By facing him and his ways I became stronger, and it was a part of finding myself. It was rough, though. Right now we still talk, but I keep him in a corner cause he'll cause me needless problems if I take my eyes off him. I'd say he is bad in a good way-or good in a bad way. Not your average mary-sue angel, in any case.
Being the oh-so-good kid I were, I'd probably be screwed up if he was all-angelic instead of showing me the other side of life. Gotta give him credit about that
Maybe you are right. I can't be sure about the real form of anything that is in my brain. My guides did help me and keep doing it, so I follow what they say all right
(Ok, not blindly-sometimes they test me so that I won't turn into a sheep!)
