In the darkness...
We each have a part of ourselves that is less than, well, um, flattering.
It's something dark. Something hidden. It can be confronting.
It's there. It's powerful. And the more we avoid it, the more it grows.
And when it grows, it flares. It explodes. And then it collapses back away and we are left with shame and guilt.
Or, we numb it. We numb it with food, booze, drugs, TV, sex, whatever. We hide it in an unconscious attempt to alleviate the problem.
But alas, the beast lives! It is there.
It is best to see it. Express it. Own it. In a held and conscious way.
Because if we don't, it will find us, and destroy us.
