see url Hello. My name is Tom. I am a monster.Monsters If you know me, you probably think I’m kidding.

I’m not.

My wife sent be a pretty powerful video that really resonated with me. The video (see below) starts with a kid walking with someone. Maybe her parent. She has a really disturbed look on her face. You come to find she’s walking with some zombie mother. This zombie mother represents her alcoholic mother. This is the way she see her mother. I am that monster too.

Now, I don’t think I’m an alcoholic, but I seem to hold the same tendencies an alcoholic parent has. I sometimes loose it with my children and become that monster. At least now, I have an image of what I look like when my emotions take over.


It’s ironic that I fear these monsters. In my fear I become what I most fear. I pass this fear on to my children so they can also be monsters.

Time to break that cycle.
