In reality, not wanting to face fatherhood, Shrek when he tried to eat was a baby. Shrek also tells Arthur that just because someone calls him a monster or a loser, does not mean that he was. Shrek tells you how people feared for years while thought he was awful and terrible, and for years he believed them. Now, learned to be who he really is.
