Like most people, one of the biggest challenges I struggle with is being my evolved self every minute of every day of my life. As a human being, I am inherently flawed. I have a pretty “healthy sized” ego. I am extremely sensitive, and I take personal offense to things rather easily. Whenever my humanness bubbles to the surface, it can be difficult to show others compassion, forgive a perceived slight, or let go of what I cannot change. But at least I am honest about these things. While it is always my intention to put my best foot forward in any situation, giving all kinds of benefits to the doubts, it is equally hard to repress the dark that often trickles into my light.
The person that is the most attractive is the person who embraces their dark and their light. It is easy for me to accept such a person, because in return, they make it easy for me to accept myself. I find comfort connecting with those who are comfortable in their discomfort. Not because misery loves company, but because my soul connects with other souls in ways that are not just harmonious – to quote M. Esther Harding: “conflict is the beginning of consciousness.”
