I was always fascinated by the dark side of people, the so-called ‘triad’. It was such a contrast to the way I naturally see the good in everyone, no matter what. But seeing the monsters we can become in order to protect ourselves made me realize that monsters aren’t always as scary as they seem. In reality, they are just humans. It can be hard to see the darkness beneath the surface, but it can be even harder to accept that the darkness is there. It’s not necessarily something we can control, and it’s not something we can just ignore. It’s part of being human, part of being alive, and it’s something that can’t be denied. We all have a dark side, and understanding that can help us to better understand ourselves and others, and to accept that we all have our own demons to fight.
