The Inner Monsters 101
What Do They Do & What Can You Do
Written & Illustrated by elinap
We all got them.
So whenever you feel like you are alone with your monster,
You probably aren’t…
But what do they do?
Let Mira and Sandy show you…
These monsters make it easy to hear the voice of your ego,
Preventing you to take bold steps,
And living your life to the fullest.
With darkened mind you dig your past,
Trying to find answers.
And at those times they help you find them,
It’s hard for you to see a solution.
You feel frustrated that it’s the same old, same old all over again.
Everything feels heavy,
It’s hard to get up from your bed.
It is all on your shoulders,
You have no one to share it with.
But your monster is sure there…
We all got them,
We are never alone.
But separated for sure,
In our own bubbles.
Glass walls feel strong,
But they are easy to break,
There’s a way out,
Just take a deep breathe.
You may argue with me,
But this is what’s happening,
Your guide is being a bit..
This is why,
It’s hard to hear any other ways,
When your heart’s voice is fainted.
She for sure knows,
This is not right.
..You know it too.
So you start looking for answers
From where you really should…
You look them in the eyes,
And try everything you can.
..But this isn’t working..
..Nor is this..
But What Can You Do Then?
Take your time to let it just be,
Turn your eyes to what you really love.
Let it out of your system,
Just talk, talk, talk to your heart.
(I call it journaling)
But don’t just keep it inside,
Reach out and receive even more love.
Test the power of concentrating on what you love instead,
You may be surprised on how powerful it is!
And now you feel strooong!
That’s when you are ready to hear its true message,
The message it delivers actually.. From Love.
This is hard to believe, when your inner monsters rule,
But it’s worthy a plan to have in mind,
When you start on your path
To be the best version of yourself.
Because it really becomes…
This Doodle Story popped out of my pen once again like this – As whole. What I most love about it, is that when the girls start wondering what to do, Mira starts to experiment.. She tries everything she can, and her path isn’t straight – The most important thing is that she tries.
And when her path is clear, when she has gone through it all, she reaches out to Sandy, her best friend and shares it all with her. Now Sandy has a chance too, to learn to deal with her monsters. This is how we heal the world.
So I’m wishing you all the perseverance you can have, to always get up after you fall. Your monster is not your reality at all. There’s more to life than that, and the sweetest thing is to learn to see love.
