Are You Holding Yourself Back?

Is Your Shadow Self Holding You Back?

Be Who You’re MEANT To Be

Have you ever considered that you may have a ‘shadow self’ lurking inside you? A side that listens to criticism and takes it to heart. A side that uses the possibilities of what could go wrong to scare you into not taking risks? A voice that says you cannot trust yourself?

We all have a shadow, even if we aren’t aware of it. In the language of the Johari Window, the Shadow is the part of ourselves that is unknown to others and hidden from ourselves.

Even if you are unaware of your Shadow, it is still active and making decisions that don’t always serve you. When we get to know our shadows and learn all they have to offer us, we open possibilities for a happier life.

“It is the opponent within us who sharpens our skills. The Shadow isn’t a problem to be solved or an enemy to be conquered, but a fertile field to be cultivated.” –Unknown
