EPISODE #38 // Learning how to embrace your dark side.

Episode #38 // Learning how to embrace your dark side

Today’s episode is all about our shadow self, or the dark parts of ourselves that we’d rather not acknowledge or shine a light on. Unfortunately, burying those qualities in the sand or turning away from our lesser liked qualities only makes them grow stronger and louder. So let’s take a walk on the dark side and embrace the less positive aspects of our selves.

Because the real question isn’t whether you have a dark side, it’s whether you acknowledge your dark side.

We’d love to hear from you!

What do you think about this concept of a shadow self? What qualities would you rather not expose to the light of day (or even tell other people about)? And how does that impact how you feel about yourself?
