Relating to Dexter…

The video above could be a potential **SPOILER** if you haven’t watched the fourth season of Dexter.

I love this show for scenes such as this one…

There’s so much psychology involved. Dexter processes all that is around him through the light of his own experiences and his own demons.

And I can relate. No, not exactly. Not even close… but the some of mental processes that Dexter goes through to satisfy his own conscience aren’t all that different than the ones many of us go through. You can just insert your own demon… (hopefully, inserting a “new” demon is necessary…)

:)

And too, though Dexter’s demon causes him to feel a lot of guilt, worry, and pain, it also fills and nourishes his being to some degree.

Can anybody else relate? Even a little bit?

I can totally relate. I can choose a number of my vices or spiritual struggles and see the love/hate relationship I have with them. I spend so much time analyzing them, as if to find a solution, and avoiding them, to get outside my current perspective. But in the end, I find myself reveling in their comforting aspects.

I thought you meant you were “related” to Dexter, which might not be all that surprising!

I can totally relate. Maybe a little bit too much because when I missed Dexter this week I had to turn to my demon for relief. Possibly a little “ironic”.

I am with you on two counts. I hate my own personal demons that seem to pop up whenever I want to “get away”. Also I love watching shows like Dexter that contemplate important philosophical or spiritual questions and morality of actions.
