Accept your Weakness to Master your True Strength

3. Your strength outweighs your weakness

Bruce Banner describes the monster inside him as being constantly “exposed, like a nerve … it’s a nightmare“, and the burden of what’s inside him is something he carries with him every single day.  He knows that he’s a single shirt-ripping moment away from destroying everything around him.

In the movie, everyone want to know the secret behind how he controls himself and keeps his anger at bay, keeping a lid on the Hulk.  It’s only right at the end of the movie that we find out what that secret is.

“I’m always angry”, he reveals.  He’s had a hard relationship with his anger and it would be easy for him to see it as a weakness and a fatal character flaw, but Banner has come to a place where he accepts it as part of who he is rather than fighting it.

Focusing on his “weakness” would play on that exposed nerve, create more internal conflict and level most of Manhattan, but in accepting his weakness he’s able to master his true strength.

The Monster Mash (Lyrics)

I was working in the lab late one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
For my monster from his slab began to rise
And suddenly to my surprise

He did the mash
He did the monster mash
The monster mash
It was a graveyard smash
He did the mash
It caught on in a flash
He did the mash
He did the monster mash

From my laboratory in the castle east
To the master bedroom where the vampires feast
The ghouls all came from their humble abodes
To get a jolt from my electrodes

They did the mash
They did the monster mash
The monster mash
It was a graveyard smash
They did the mash
It caught on in a flash
They did the mash
They did the monster mash

The zombies were having fun
The party had just begun
The guests included Wolf Man
Dracula and his son

The scene was rockin’, all were digging the sounds
Igor on chains, backed by his baying hounds
The coffin-bangers were about to arrive
With their vocal group, “The Crypt-Kicker Five”

They played the mash
They played the monster mash
The monster mash
It was a graveyard smash
They played the mash
It caught on in a flash
They played the mash
They played the monster mash

Out from his coffin, Drac’s voice did ring
Seems he was troubled by just one thing
He opened the lid and shook his fist
And said, “Whatever happened to my Transylvania twist?”

It’s now the mash
It’s now the monster mash
The monster mash
And it’s a graveyard smash
It’s now the mash
It’s caught on in a flash
It’s now the mash
It’s now the monster mash

Now everything’s cool, Drac’s a part of the band
And my monster mash is the hit of the land
For you, the living, this mash was meant too
When you get to my door, tell them Boris sent you

Then you can mash
Then you can monster mash
The monster mash
And do my graveyard smash
Then you can mash
You’ll catch on in a flash
Then you can mash
Then you can monster mash

Cute Monster Witch


What Your Cute Monster Says About You


You are a vibrant, vivacious person. When you live, you live as wildly and loudly as possible.

You are very bold. You are willing to stand up and be a leader.

Your inner demon is intensity. You have a tendency to let your passions take over.

People think you’re cute because you’re fiery. When you get worked up, it’s charming.


You Are 45% Witch


It’s unlikely that you’re a witch. At least, no one thinks you are.

You may still be interested in witchcraft, but you’re by no means a stereotypical witch.

While you don’t seem all that witchy, people may think you’re a bit weird.

You’re definitely a little offbeat. No one really knows what to make of you sometimes.


What Your Jack-o-Lantern Says


You tend to be a bit of a grouchy person. The scrooge of Halloween.

And while you may complain about it, you would miss Halloween if it didn’t come around.

This Halloween you should embrace your inner grump – be a warlock or a witch.

The candy you should give out: sour patch kids
