I was listening to Kelly Clarkson song the “Dark Side” and it made me realize that we all have a side of ourselves that we don’t want to share. We are scared of showing to others, to ourselves because it is what we see as our failures, our guilt, our shame.
To share with others means we become vulnerable and could easily be hurt… but what if that wasn’t always true?
I realized that if we take the time to work through what we see as our dark side and accept all of ourselves deep down inside, when we share our vulnerabilities with others they can’t hurt us (as much).
They don’t have the power to cause as much havoc, or use our vulnerabilities against us cause it is no longer something that we are hiding from.
