These make excellent fodder for stories. After all, what is a good story but the inner conflicts endured and overcome?
Considering my own inner monsters, one need be honest with oneself. I carry a tremendous amount of lack of faith in myself, as well as a good amount of anger over the past. I do not forgive easily and I never forget. Does this become my weakness or my strength? Time will tell. Better still when I encounter others through life that might need a compassionate person who doesn’t keep walls around her to protect herself.
Consider your own inner demons, and then consider a story on how best to face them, ultimately defeating or even utilizing a weakness to be your greatest strength!
