The Monster can change your life completely. Just like it changed mine.

When I was three, I had a life changing dream. I remember it perfectly. I was in a small, dark, wooden room, standing on a tightrope. I didn't know where I was or where I was going, but I started walking. Walking on the tightrope wasn't easy, and I knew I would fall soon. I looked down and saw the Monster. He was big and green and had open jaws, threatening  to swallow me whole. I looked back up and continued walking, but it became much harder. Then, I fell into the Monster's open mouth.

This dream means something to me. I am always walking on a tightrope, trying to please other people, trying to be perfect. At least I used to be. Once you meet the Monster, there's no going back. Things have changed since I met the Monster...
