Forgive your demons and make your angels sing.

We all have a darkness inside us. However, when we try to suppress or hide that darkness it only gets darker. We need to love all of our parts — even the dark ones — in order to be truly happy and comfortable in our own skin.

By illuminating and loving our darkness, we transform and heal it. In my experience, our darkness is more often than not caused by hurts we’ve experienced and didn’t heal. For example, were you teased, perhaps bullied, in school? It hurt to be so rejected and picked on. Some people take that pain and turn it into either bulling behavior toward others or an acceptance of victimhood. Either way, we don’t feel 100% good about ourselves and may attempt to hide that feeling of inadequacy in a variety of ways.

However, if we can look at that pain, bring it to the light and love ourselves despite what has been done to us or what bone-headed decisions we’ve made because of it, we can move forward with greater strength and clarity.
