There are some things we don’t talk about, things we hide and ignore and secret away, in fear of scaring people we care about away. But sometimes that darkness creeps over us. Sometimes, because we are so nice, and so kind, and we listen to everyone else and keep quiet, and keep it all in, the darkness begins to grab hold no matter what.

You can’t fight the shadow, you can’t make it go away.. because you are the shadow. When you have those moments of utter rage, hatred, out of nowhere, that’s your shadow. When you hate with all of your being, that’s your shadow. The job of the artist is to somehow survive the shadow without being destroyed by it. One must accept their shadow to grow beyond the ideas of shadow and light. Do you dare take a chance? ❤
