We grow up from Shadow of self to Shadow self.
As a baby, shadow is what we get scared of..
As a Kid, Shadow is what we play with..
As an Adult, Shadow is what we try to hide.. Babies get scared by the dark reflection which follows them but as they grow up as kid, they realizes that this dark object is part of their lives and they try to embrace that part by playing with it. They try to connect with the dark reflection of their own, they try to make it look interesting, they try to make different kind of shapes with the help of light, but as they grow up more and become adults, this dark reflection is not just a shadow but a shadow self which they try to HIDE FROM THE WORLD BECAUSE THEY THINK THAT THEY FAILED TO MAKE SOMETHING DIFFERENT. This shadow self rules the mind of an adult. This shadow self personifies everything that the person refuses to acknowledge about himself.
One needs to understand that Shadow Self is not a negative thing, it's not what someone should hide and not embrace it.
You can HAVE A SHADOW. No matter how happy or Jolly a person seem, they definitely have a shadow just like others.
If a person makes an attempt to see his shadow self or we can say if he wishes to connect with his shadow self, he needs to go through the light, and by means of going through the light, he needs to see inside himself, he needs to accept those qualities and impulses which he sees easily in others but denies accepting the fact that he is just the same because he is afraid to do so.
He shall accept his failures, his habits, his mindset and all those things which are making him stop embracing his shadow self. He needs to let that dark side of him come out in front of the world.
Shadow self is not just the dark side of a person but it also indeed offers many opportunities and ideas to work on and win the world. Shadow self gives a person the insights about them and their hidden strength, which they are afraid to take a chance on. *TO BE CONTINUED IN THE COMMENT SECTION*
