Behind The Shadow

I am compelled to post this photo because I like it. We see a silhouette of a person only. We have this silhouette in us. There are times in our lives that we want to hide with in our shadow. It is better this way; nobody will judge us, right? People will see us in a passive way. But, life is not like that. We have to mingle and belong.If we want others to accept us, we have to blend with them. Keep up with them. But, the choice of group that we wanted to belong can be a good one or can shift our lives in a negative path. We have our choices and it’s up to you which path to take. Was there a time in our lives that because of our arrogance, we judged the person according to the physical aspect and the wrong choices they make? Sometimes, we are judgmental as if we are righteous. We should sometimes consider that they are human and vulnerable to feel pain.Behind the shadow of every person, there lies the true self. No matter how we dressed up good or pretend that we are okay or superior to anyone around, in the darkness, we have fears. The fear of rejection, the feeling of loneliness and we wanted to avoid these. Either way, behind the shadow of our being, we should not forget that acceptance is the key to happiness. Be contented of what you have. If you feel rejection from others, accept it and move on. If others don’t want you in, don’t push yourself. On the other side of the coin, don’t judge the person according to their physical attributes. Give importance of the character of a person. That is the key to win a friend and to belong.
