The monster is always there. Everybody has a Rottenvater. The question isn’t whether he’s there, but how you deal with him. You can feed him, comfort him, nurture him and help him grow, perhaps even allow him to guide you and run your life. Or you can ignore him and force him to feed himself. You can hate him, fear him, run away from him, or you can try to understand him and so re-shape him to fall within what you think you want from your life.
Or, you can ask the KerDoodles for help with the latest snowfall.
