Perhaps, instead of attempting to eradicate the Monster Mind, you should befriend it.

Obviously, the more you try to kill it, the harder it comes back to express itself.

Balance, my friend, balance.

If you cannot, sometimes, be critical, judgemental, "monsterous" and loved in spite or just loved or liked with it, then perhaps... you know, you don't need the people... Sorry, I am not being direct: The trick is to be yourself and attempt to let other people being themselves. You have a monster living in your head, well, that's ok. That monster is you and you are not a sunshiney, happy person all the time. If the only way people can like you is if you are being sunshiney and happy, then you aren't giving yourself enough of a chance... nor anyone else.

From the first time I read about your Monster Mind, I noded (?) to myself and waited for more information...

I have a Monster Mind, too.
And you know what? I do not try to control it. But I do try to keep it in balance.

I learned that my Monster Mind gets out of balance when I concentrate too much on the Light of me. Darkness is always there and it needs to be honored, too. Trying to uphold one brings detriment.

You are going to be fine.
I am cheering for you
Started cheering when I saw you
at breakfast before you got into the Circle
Know this.

Perhaps, the exhaustion comes from over-performing. Performing sunshine all the time is taxing.

I know.

Know that.
