To the part of me

So often we hide the parts of ourselves we are ashamed of, that we feel makes us unloveable or unacceptable, known as the ‘shadow.’ Our often unconscious rejection of these parts is at the very root of feelings of isolation and depression – as we reject ourselves for fear of rejection by others. And yet this is at the heart of what it is to be human.

“To the part of me that loves so deeply, longing for love in return and yet protects so fiercely that she cannot receive

I love you

To the part of me that is lost and alone and yet cannot trust the light that shows the way

I love you

To the part of me that looks so endlessly for answers, yet cannot trust the answers that come from within

I love you

To the part of me that aches to be held and yet cannot sink into the safety of an embrace

I love you

To the part of me that longs to be seen, and yet cannot allow the light to shine through the armour that surrounds my heart

I love you

To the part of me that dances to the strange music of life, and yet cannot let her beauty be seen

I love you

To the part of me that whispers the truth in the dark mystery of the night, yet cannot find the words to speak her truth out loud

I love you

To the part of me that is broken, and yet cannot reveal the brokenness to those who could with their love heal

I love you

To the part of you that meets me, knowing in that meeting we will feel the connection we are both longing for

I love you”
