Everyone has a dark side.
It’s there, even if we don’t want to admit it. Way deep down inside of us, hiding in the very darkest corners of our subconscious, but when it comes out and reveals itself to us, it’s frightening.
NO. Not for me at least. It’s not easy knowing there’s a side of you that could be dangerous, that could even hurt yourself or others, but it’s not there all the time. I mean, I don’t always feel it. Then again, I have a hard time feeling anything at all, at least not any of the emotions normal people feel. Still, it’s not really scary. At first it can be, but it doesn’t have to be. The first step is accepting that it is there and that there is something you can do about it.
The feeling isn’t just going to go away if you ignore it. Inside every single one of us, there’s a big bad wolf just waiting to come out to play. We have to let it once in awhile, we have to find a healthy way to control the wolf, take it out for a few big meals every now and then. If we do that, the urges will subside for the time being, but they will never, EVER completely leave us. No matter how bad we want them too.
As children we were told to not talk to the strangers, and at first that’s what that wolf inside of us is. But I saw screw what those fairy tales taught us or nursery rhymes, the people who wrote them just hadn’t seen there big bad wolf yet, but he’s there, he is ALWAYS there. So make friends with him, he won’t bite…much.
Who’s afraid of the big bad wolf?
