Must We Face Our Dark Side to Be Healthy?

We can work hard to avoid it and accept it at the same time.You don’t think you have a dark side? I’m pretty sure that even Mother Teresa had one and you’re not Mother Teresa. We all have one.I once listened to a Jordan Peterson lecture that confronted me with my dark side in a way that I will never forget.

He made the point that when we read about historical atrocities like those of Nazi Germany, we imagine ourselves to be the ‘good guys’ in the story. We automatically think that we would be the ones that would be courageously rescuing the Jews.He’s right.

We always envision ourselves as the ‘good’ guys. Peterson’s point is that you shouldn’t be so sure.Millions of ‘good’ people had to ignore what was happening in order for those horrors
