“i love shadow because i means there is light” – my mom
some people either live in the brightest of lights or the deepest darkness. no gray zones no “maybes”… no “don’t have an opinion”… no “i don’t know if i like that”. i am one of those people. whereas i can not (and don’t want to) change that about me, i have learned that it is better to accept the shadow, and live through it as best i can (till i get to a better place ). i am not going as far as trying to enjoy the darkness (because udoubtibly i and the people around me prefer it when i am on the “sunny side of things”) but simply seeing shadow as pure evidence of the light. the one can not exist without the other.
