You Are Not Your Shadow

He finds a way through the cracks whenever I’m at my weakest.

It’s like he’s always there, waiting for an opportunity to slip through.

I’m talking about my shadow, of course.

You have one too. He or she is comprised of all of the negative energy that lives within you.

This is not a bad thing; it’s simply something to be aware of.

The shadow operates in the realm of fear, anger, jealousy, and so forth.

He causes you to react, rather than respond.

It’s when you’re not paying attention, when you’re not aware of who you really are, that he takes over.

The truth of the matter is that you are not your shadow.

He’s just very clever at making you think that he is in control.

He’s not.

He’s only in control when you allow him to be.
