An Apology to My Darkness

a story of embracing one's shadow
(click the arrow to see the comic)

Our shadow is all that we do not accept about ourselves. Our sadness, shame, jealousy, regrets, helplessness, anger, low self-esteem and so much more. Sometimes the shadow grows

and takes over everything.

Then we have two options, to face it or to push it away. Yet hiding the shadow under the rug is temporary and the numbness makes our life grey.

To recover our joy we must face our shadow. We must see that these things we push away are inevitably a part of us. This is when we transform.

The healing, acceptance and willingness to embrace all aspects of ourselves, light & shadow, is what makes us resilient and whole.
