Feeding the Monsters

Monsters thrive when you feed them. Every troll, every bully is looking for someone weaker than they are, and they come in every size, shape, and type.

Fear mongers play on your fears, bullies play on your weaknesses and insecurities. I was lucky – I grew up with a very long stubborn streak and the ability to not see things I didn’t want to see.

Sometimes you starve the monsters by yelling back at them, sometimes that only makes them bolder. The key is knowing your monsters.
