Carl Jung: “The shadow is the negative side of the personality, the sum of all those unpleasant qualities we like to hide. … There is no light without shadow and no psychic wholeness without imperfection.”
“I think many of us feel like we must wear a happy face all the time and overlook the cracks. This is not true. You can own the cracks, be with them, listen to what they have to tell you, and use them.”
