This idea of embracing your dark side has been coming up for me a lot lately. Spirituality isn’t about allowing only the good parts of you to come through. It’s about being fully and authentically yourself, including the side of you that may not always be accepted and is susceptible to judgment or criticism. It is your shadow self that holds the key to who you are at your core, the good and the bad. The vulnerable parts of you, where your inner truest passions live, what you are willing to fight for and what pushes you to keep showing up even through the toughest times.
