Guillaume Musso
“On calm days, you always think you've conquered them. 
You think that in the end you've finally done them in.

Tirelessly waiting for the moment when our guard drops.
And when love goes away...”

Is there one thing, or maybe many things, keeping you from forgiving your past and moving forward, tormenting you with lies like “You don’t deserve real love so just settle for whatever you can get,” “You’re not smart enough to achieve your dream so don’t even try,” or “Look at your past… you should hate yourself way more than you actually do!”?

Welcome to your Little Monster.”
