It’s funny how if you shun your shadow side, you just create more of whatever it is you are running from….which in turn creates more shame & guilt. In order to love & accept all parts of yourself, you must turn & face your shadow. Although it seems counterintuitive, acknowledging & accepting it lovingly sheds the necessary light to heal the hidden hurts & core beliefs buried deep within. When we pick & choose which parts of ourselves are worthy to love, we are cutting ourselves off from our wholeness. You, me, & everyone else deserves to live in the truth that fundamentally, we are whole, perfect, & complete.
