Do You Think Cruella de Vil Did a Good Job Portraying a Great Villain?

Each villain has a distinct personality, which is usually based on greed. It’s the same with Cruella de Vil, who causes havoc wherever she goes.

Indeed, every villain has a backstory and has gone through something traumatic that made them aggressive and cruel. Because of these experiences, they’re shaped to be ruthless and unkind toward others.

But, remember that even when we’re faced with unkind people in real life, we shouldn’t act in the same way they act toward us. Be the bigger person and be more understanding whenever you encounter someone like Cruella de Vil.

Instead of fighting them, encourage them to make positive changes in their lives. By acting positively and kind, you’ll be able to instill hope and goodness in others.
