Single Frame Stories

Embracing Her Shadow

We all have one – a darker side. A side we try to avoid. It’s borne of fear and perhaps, shame. The side we keep hidden.

At some point in our journey to self-awareness, we must embrace the shadow. To discover those hidden elements of our lives that so often control our thoughts and actions. But the difficulty lies in deciding what is the shadow and what is our self.

Sometimes it takes reflection. And sometimes in the dark of the night, the moonlight shines through and reflects back on us, allowing us a glimpse of what is buried inside.

1 Shadow or herself

In that moment, we can embrace our shadow and allow it freedom – to let us learn and grow.

I’ve decided this will be my entry for this week’s Single Frame Stories post on “Self.”
