Wow, another powerful story! I’m a little lost for words at the moment as I sit here processing the imagery. I hear so many emotions coming through this story – anger, fear, resentment, loneliness, love, passion, strength. Above all, I can see a desperate desire to be seen. The story is describing a monster, yet a monster with such human emotions and desire for connection. As you point out, the inner demons lose their power when surrounded by love. What a beautiful metaphor. I also love how the story identifies the courage it takes to be tender and vulnerable.
Thanks for sharing your stories with us, TigerMama. This is certainly reminds me of the power of connection. <3
