We often feel this pressure that when we feel all these squirmy not so comfortable emotions that we are doing something wrong or that what we are experiencing is wrong.
All emotions are valid and necessary.
Why do we spend so much time criticising and judging ourselves and others for their dark times?
We can't experience the 'light', the 'positive', the 'bliss states' until we really know and experience the dark; the 'sad', the 'depressing, 'the uncomfortable'.
To walk an empowered path is to know both.
Once you know both, you open yourself to a deep appreciation and gratitude deeper than you have ever experienced before.
Once you know both, you can hold another in their dark times with such openness, awareness and love. Judgement has no place, for you no longer judge yourself for your dark times. You've freed yourself, so now you can free others.
Next time you experience the dark, thank your self and give gratitude for what it is allowing you to experience and learn and let go of in order to make space for the new.
