The Beast Inside

Photo taken by a woman in her thirties in New York who suffers from major mood shifts, perhaps caused by bipolar disorder.

About this photo: “I saw this disturbing creature in a window display in Manhattan. I was disgusted but intrigued. Sometimes I feel like a monster because of my unpredictable moods. Like a hideous beast who suddenly gets agitated and angry, but tries to put on a smile and make people happy nonetheless. This feels a little like a portrait of my inner self, as disturbing as that sounds, or at least my view of my inner self.”

    Looks a lot like one of my inner beasts!
    Just as well we have ‘beauty’ hiding in there too. 🙂
