Monsters........

As a child, I never imagined that all of the real monsters in the world would be human - Mobeen Hakeem

I'd like to take a minute of your time and share some words about something truly horrifying. They walk among us. They look like us. They smell like us. They sound like us. But they wear masks, sooo many different masks. They look like husbands, wives, fathers, mothers, teens, police, protesters, politicians, business people, teachers, religious leaders & followers, and a million other disguises. But they are not what they seem. They've been damaged. Life has dealt them blows that they've absorbed and then scarred over. The scarring has allowed their pain to fester and warp them. They learned how to cope, but they never really healed. They've patched a life out of the fragments they have left, but their brokenness and fear drive them to do things of which only monsters are capable. Their spirits are dead and the darkness in that pit overwhelms them at times. And then it comes.........crawling out from behind the mask to wreak havoc on everyone and everything around them.

The monsters have so many faces when they appear. They kill. They hurt. They war. They rage. They destroy. The monsters rarely even know they are monsters. When faced with the evidence of their evil, they often discount it and hide from it, allowing the shame of it all to feed their monster to even greater evil. And the only thing that can stop their monster.......is them.

If you have ever lived or known someone dealing with their with a monster, then you know exactly what I'm writing about. It's horrifying. The wounds they create are devastating. They hurt adults, children, and animals without conscience. And usually they do far more damage in secret with their words, rather than physical damage, than we'll ever understand.

Monsters need help from themselves. If you know someone who is suffering from a monster, please, get help. I'm begging you. If you are the victim, get help now. If you fight your own monsters, find the courage to get to someone who is trained to help you slay them. And most importantly, if you suspect someone is fighting a monster or being chased by one, either ask them about it or tell a professional monster killer about it.

I know hundreds of people who have slain their monsters. They are free. They've ripped up the scars and bled out their wounds. They've faced their pain and live free from torment.......and so do the people who love them.

I can't make anyone do anything. I can't promise it will be easy. But what I can promise is that if nothing is done, the monsters only get worse and more powerful. They never willingly go away. Take action. Be a hero. Save someone's life. Be a monster killer.

Relatable. I learned that the real monsters I should be worried about ain't under the bed but where indeed humans when I was 5... And I've met so many monsters after that too :sad:
