My darkness just became a “normal” part of me.
I grew to live with it,
to essentially become it,
for nearly 10 years.⠀⠀⠀
It was my shadow.
No matter where I went,
there it was.⠀⠀⠀
I would be laughing momentarily,
yet the shadow would eventually come creeping out,
whispering darkness right back into my ear.⠀⠀⠀
No matter what,
the shadow wouldn’t leave me,
it became all consuming.
I tried to run from it.
and I cried,
and I cried.
Yet it wouldn’t leave me,
and the utter darkness became my full identity.
It was all I knew.
…then about a year ago,
Instead of dreading my darkness,
instead of running from it,
I accepted it.
I was determined to learn all I could about it,
yet I also became devoted to getting rid of this shadow aspect of myself.⠀⠀⠀
I started reading.
I started taking courses.
I started to search for passion.
I started to look for love, within.⠀⠀⠀
I wanted to live my radiant life,
not merely survive it.⠀⠀⠀
So I committed to myself,
and I’m still committing,
Of course it’s not an easy thing –
to overcome your shadow,
especially once you get used to having them.
they essentially grew to become my identity.
But I knew there was more to this life.
I wanted to embody my higher self,
to step into my true essence,
to live my human experience,
as best as I could,
and as magically as possible.⠀⠀⠀
So here I am, devoted.
Devoted to myself.
Devoted to becoming.
Devoted to living.
The shadow is now fading,
and the light is beginning to rise. ✨
