“The only way your dark side can work against you is if you don’t own it. In other words, if you keep pretending you are all sweetness and light, the daggers appear when you least expect them. The bitch will own you if you don’t become her friend. On your side, your inner bitch will teach you boundaries. She’ll also alert you to areas of your life where you feel short-changed. In fact, the more you develop a rapport with your dark side, the more truly happy and balanced you will be. The womanly art I’d like you to learn is how to form bonds of friendship, love and understanding with all your shortcomings, downfalls or weaknesses. Identifying those things that currently rule your world and limit you is a crucial step.”
