Your other side, is a compartmentalized part of your being. It’s been pushed out of the conscious mind. When we experience fear, remorse, blame, shame, judgement, or guilt. Our coping mechanisms tend to kick in, and shut down our self expression.
And unless you’re a monk, nun, or priest-like character spending all your days alone, You get a daily dose of your unconsciousness through relating to other people.
Like your Family.
It’s uncomfortable to feel. It hurts. It makes life much harder. So we tell it to go away. Ignore it. Give it to God. Keep busy. Drink it down. Drug it up
Act all enlightened.
A lot of the time we’re just doing our best to make sense of it all. But why do these challenges always come back? It is a piece of you, so It never leaves really. These parts of you need the light. To be seen, and to be heard. And to be given permission by you, to be expressed wholly again. Observing what you don’t like about yourself or what you’ve been told is bad, is your Saving Grace
You’re so safe. You can give yourself a chance to be loved. It is a step to wholeness you’ve literally been dying for.
