I must not tell lies!
For anyone who is familiar with J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, Dolores Umbridge is undoubtedly one of the most unforgettable characters that leaves us cringing; the kind we pray we’ll never run into in our own lives. She embodies all of the qualities most of us attempt to deny and reject in life – she is cruel, sadistic, prejudiced, manipulative, spiteful, corrupt, the list just doesn’t end.
Umbridge essentially represents the shadow of our consciousness; she is so despicable that we will do anything to not be like her. She is the shadow we love to hate.
Most of us have encountered an Umbridge at some point in our journeys. More often than not, she (or he) is that person who holds power over us, rendering us feeling helpless and enraged. On many occasions, my friends and clients have complained about an Umbridge-type boss that is making their lives as fun as imprisonment in Azkaban (the worst prison imaginable). Having had my share in the past, I only know the feeling too well of waking up in the morning with no goal other than surviving the workday while suppressing the tremendous urge to quit and sprint out of the building.
