Birth of a monster | I wasn’t born with a negative self-evaluation. It was how I interpreted the attitudes, messages and behaviours that I experienced. As a child, I knew no other way to make sense of them. So, they were internalised; the octopus was born. And it grew and grew to humongous strength.
.

NB. It was really difficult to write down some of these messages. Even now, they continue to instil so much trepidation and shame. .

To overcome this, you first need to recognise this monster is not ‘of you’. It is the voices and attitudes of others. It’s only purpose is shame, denigration and punishment. It has no goodness with it. Separate it from your true self. Then you can start to fight it. …But it’s not easy. Like me, you may need an army.
