Build yourself a great story………..
According to psychology of human, some people easily move on or get on with it following life’s darker moments, while others tend to linger in the darkness. Perhaps this has something to do with acknowledging or being mindful of one’s shadow side. The shadow may be thought of as the dumping ground for undesirable traits, or those characteristics that have not been brought into consciousness, which may include obsession with dark or solemn moments. Those traits that we find distasteful in others are often clues to characters of our shadows side.
So far, in my life I’ve learned that both growth and transformation are born out of darkness! We can not know the light without experiencing the darkness. Curl Jung said that when light is made, and so is darkness….”No wonder people only want to enjoy the beauty of light” said Christine Bellington. According to Jungian analyst Robert Johnson in his book Owning Your Own Shadow, there’s gold to be found in shadow, in sense that there is something to learn from it; however, many people resist wanting to mine that gold.
By embracing the opposite in our lives, we are milking the shadow, and that is the saving grace. For the most part, we expend a great deal of energy focusing on the shadow sides and often put light on the back burner of our lives- one of the reasons why many people gravitate to and talk about negative news.
It’s not what we see that matters but the brain which translates what is seen. It is not the circumstance that’s ahead of us unlike the poor mind which can’t figure out how to overcome the circumstance. It’s not even the people around us that keep pulling us behind to reach our potentials perhaps our failure to prove them wrong. Darkness, becomes the lack of sunshine or joy in life.
It is rather easy to shine in the light but to glow in the dark….that’s mastery!!! We suffer more in imagination than in reality; visualize to actualize.
YOU’VE TO FIGHT SOME BAD DAYS TO EARN THE BEST DAYS OF YOUR LIFE.
