"Beneath the social mask we wear every day,we have a hidden shadow side:an impulsive,wounded,sad,or isolated part that we generally try to ignore.The Shadow can be a source of emotional richness & vitality,& acknowledging it can be a pathway to healing & an authentic life.We meet our dark side,accept it for what it is,& we learn to use its powerful energies in productive ways.-"Romancing the Shadow," by Connie Zwieg, PhD.,& Steve Wolf, PhD.
The face can lie. We find no difficulty disguising our feelings. We veil our thoughts. We learn to express the illusion of being contented among people we don’t want to be with, sad when a friend loses her boyfriend, pleased when someone wins a prize we were secretly hoping to win. http://chloethurlow.com/2014/02/mask/
