Uilleand Thought for the Day (Oct 25) (27) RE: Thought for the Day (Oct 25) 25 Oct 99

I guess it all depends on what you label as 'wrong'. Usually what we deny rules us. Too leave the shadow unexplored is to give it power. I think many times when we do things we label as 'wrong' it's because we are unaware of what causes us to act a certain way. To me exploring my dark sides means accepting it first of all, instead of judging it, which doesn't help. And then to question my motives, before acting. The gap between how someone should act and how they do act is so often purely in the mind of the viewer. But it seems to me mostly that I find something 'wrong' with myself when I should do something and don't or shouldn't and do. But without examining the why, I'm usually doomed to repeat those 'wrongs' even if I'm determined not to. But without them, how would I grow? If we were all perfect, what are doing here? To me the challenge is to love everyone, including myself not just in spite of, but because of these flaws. Gotta love humanity for trying, if nothing else.
