So far I’ve only seen the “call yourself out” narrative on Shadow Work – it seems as if holding yourself accountable is a shadow thing rather than neutral… why is this? Why is the conversation about shadow work so focused on calling yourself out?
I feel there are ways to go about shadow work in a way that gives you the space to feel everything and still grow without judging yourself, without grinding your teeth over something you’ve just called yourself out on.
I don’t know why but I’ve sometimes perceived this conversation in a way that people almost want to beat themselves up over these parts of themselves that hurt them… or.. the fact that shadow work simply means working with repressed and unconscious things in your being – also things that are neutral and beneficial. Most people say it’s just painful or harmful, traumatic things you work in shadow… but that’s not the case.
The place of neutrality and non-judgement brings you the most healing… you can judge on whether something is the best for you or not, but please PLEASE PLEASE do not judge yourself while you’re healing and doing the work on yourself!
You’re growing, boo.
See things from a higher perspective, choose things from a higher perspective and choose to grow that way.
Taking accountability is growth and it can be done without being mean to yourself. You will need to be mindful and conscious, but you do not need to beat yourself up.
