Accepting all parts of oneself

“This being human is a guest house. Every morning is a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor…Welcome and entertain them all. Treat each guest honourably. The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing and invite them in. Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond”.



”Shame is a cancer. It eats away at you from the inside and is the sworn enemy of the truth, which may be it’s only cure. The worst part about shame is that it eats away at your soul, it convinces you that you are the worst version of yourself and destroys any hope that you will ever find true peace”.
