#33 If you want to understand your shadow
“It’s important to really see your shadow and see where it is. Your shadow’s always going to be attached to you, it’s always going to be at your feet and it’s always going to follow you. So it’s a matter of accepting it or not … It’s not about facing your shadow or fighting your shadow, but just acknowledging the fact you have your shadow. And that really brings us comfort and peace. Sometimes the shadow grows — sometimes it shortens and lengthens — but it’s always going to be attached to you. So acknowledging its presence and accepting it takes a lot of courage. So I think that is what allows us to keep going.” –Suga, BTS Global Press Conference for Map of the Soul: 7, February 2020
