Why do you openly rejoice and yet silently suffer?
Why do you hide away your pain and struggle?
Why do you isolate when you most need the comfort and support of another?
Because you are afraid.
Afraid to be seen as weak.
Afraid to be judged for your emotions.
Afraid to be ridiculed for your pain.
However, struggling in silence and solitude only prolongs your pain.
You are a being of light, yes, but you are also a being of dark. Each and every person has a shadow side. Darkness and shadow are some of the most beautiful aspects of the human experience.
It may not seem like it in the midst of your pain and struggle, but each and every moment within your life is divinely inspired. There is no wasted time, no wasted experience, no wasted pain.
All is perfectly crafted for your highest good and most divine purpose.
You are loved, both the light and dark sides of you. It is time to stop hiding the struggle. It is time to stop suffering in silence. Cast your shadow, just as you would shine your light, and watch as you inspire others to do the same.
