“We are becoming masters of filtering away the bad and the sad and the negative.

But in our attempts to polish away those imperfections and to ‘put on a happy face.’ as we try to forget the darker and the more tender sides of our humanity, we also risk losing the best parts of who we are.” The Happiness Effect by Donna Freitas

That famous saying that the light can not exist without the dark is true. If you get rid of the dark part of yourself, you give no space for the light to exist. And if you ignore the dark, it only grows more powerful.
