Keep Your Dark Side From Running Your Life 

奔跑吧,远离人生的阴暗面!

“Dwelling on the negative simply contributes to its power.”
“一味沉溺于消极事物,只会助长消极的力量。”

Every light has darkness to balance it out.
有光明的地方必有黑暗来平衡。

People can be kind or mean or beautiful or ugly. We sometimes are compassionate or selfish, and at other times we feel safe or insecure, or confident or hopeless.
人们可能是善良,吝啬,美丽或丑陋的。我们有时是富于同情心亦或自私的,也有些时候我们感到有安全感亦或不安,自信亦或绝望。

Every moment of every day we’re choosing which road to go down. If someone treats us unfairly, are we going to respond with hate and spite, or compassion and understanding?
每一天的每一个时刻我们都在选择前进的道路。如果有人对我们不公,我们该用厌恶和仇恨还是怜悯和理解去回报对方?

Society around us tries its best to help us chose. “Think about yourself first,” it says. “Aspire to be as beautiful and attractive as possible.” Subtle nods tell us it’s okay to use things and people to get what you want, to be aggressive, and to seek superficial adoration rather than deep friendships.
社会竭尽所能地帮我们做选择。“首先对自身进行考量,”它说。“立志尽量做到完美迷人。”(社会向你)微微点头表示你可以利用身边的物和人来获取自己想要的,变得强势以及为了追求肤浅的风光而放弃深厚的友谊。

Shove those negative feelings deep down like proverbial skeletons in the closet. Put those bad thoughts and desires in a box and don’t ever open it. But you can no more avoid dealing with your shadow than you can avoid using your left foot when you walk.If you ignore your shadow, it will take on a life of its own. It will fester and eat away at you.

强行压抑负面情绪,就如同把骷髅塞柜子里。将这些糟糕的想法和欲望放进一个盒子里并且从不开启。但你无法避免和自己(内心的)阴暗面相处,正如你无法单靠右脚走路。如果你忽视自己的阴暗面,它将拥有自己的生命,(最终)将会糟蹋及吞噬你。

Maybe you develop an alternate personality through which to express your shadow’s desires. Maybe you build walls of secrecy to hide the things you do when your shadow is in control. Either way, your being is off balance, and the impact on your life and your relationships can be devastating.Here are some steps to get on the right track.

通过表达自己阴暗面的欲望,也许你可以改变自己的性格。也许你会在自己阴暗面受到控制时建立防护墙用以掩盖自己的所作所为。不管怎样,你正在失去平衡,而且这对你生活和人际关系的影响可能是毁灭性的。这里有一些方法(帮你)回到正轨。

Commit to Exploring Your Dark Side
致力于探索自己的黑暗面

It’s a trip that’s not always going to be nice and pleasant. You will find out things didn’t know about yourself, and many of them won’t be positive. You have to commit to the search for truth in order to minimize the impact your shadow has on your life going forward.

这是一次并不总是那么美好和愉悦的旅行。你会发现一些自己都不了解自己的事情并且其中很多都不是积极的。你必须致力于找寻事实真相以便于最小化阴暗面对你往后的生活造成的影响。

List Your Trigger Emotions
列出你的情形引发源头

Come up with triggers for destructive behaviors, such as frustration, loneliness, hunger, low self-esteem, nervousness, and the like.If you have multiple different behaviors you’re trying to work on, you will probably find that many of the triggers drive more than one type of behavior. It’s not intended to be a smack down; it’s designed to make you stronger and more prepared and able to handle future trigger events.

想想引发极端行为的源头,例如沮丧,孤单,饥饿,自卑,焦躁及类似情感。如果你拥有自己正试图研究的多种不同的行为,你可能会发现很多的源头会导致多种类型的行为。这么做并不是为了责骂你,而是为了让你变得更强大以及对于解决未来引发事件更有把握和能力。

Meditate

沉思

A practice of seated meditation allows you a greater sense of neutral awareness of your own feelings, emotions, and desires. To learn how to manage those thoughts, so that when a negative or destructive emotion comes along, you can chose to just send it along on its way.

静坐冥思的习惯让你在面对自己的感觉,情感和欲望使有更多淡然处之的感觉。学会如何管理这些想法,以便当一个负面或破坏性情绪来袭,你能选择将它原路送回。

Observe Your Shadow
观察自己的阴暗面

So now we have established a list of trigger emotions that we need to be on the look out for, and we’re learning to become more transparent to ourselves through meditation.We’re now in a position to co-exist with our shadow.

现在我们已经建立了一份关于引发情绪的列表因此我们需要小心观望,而且通过冥思我们正学着变得自我透明化。我们正处于和我们阴暗面共处的位置。

We don’t have to fight it, because it has no power over us. We know it’s there, we know what it looks like, and we know what to do when it shows its ugly face. “Only in the recognition and acceptance of our shadow side can we become whole, integrated, reconciled, and therefore truly and fully ourselves.”

我们不需要击败它,因为它没有超越我们的力量。我们知道它在这,知道它是什么样子的,也知道当它现出丑陋的面庞时该如何处理。“只有认识和接受我们的阴暗面,我们才能变得完整,综合,协调并且由此自我变得真实和完整

You don’t fight it; you don’t suppress it; you don’t try to turn it into something it’s not. You recognize your shadow, but you don’t allow it to control your life or determine your future actions.

你不用击败它,不用超越它;你不用试图将它变成本不是它的事物。你认识到自己的阴暗面,但你不允许它控制你的生活或决定你未来的行为。
