Have you come to know your dark self?

My question is this. We all have a good/bad side. None of us is all one or the other. Have you found what your bad/evil side is? Have you come to terms and accepted it for what it is? Do you fight it? Do you think one would be stronger than the other or can they both be as equals? Look inside of yourself and let me know.

I've dealt with my dark side yeah..I've learn to accept it, and that it'd be worse if I didn't have it. It can help me to survive though too much of it'd kill me. I love and hate it at the same time..so I fight it when I must and embrace it all other times. I don't know what it'd be like if we all had equal parts of good or bad in us, I suppose it'd be bad, 'cause we'd be constantly blending or alternating between the two, which couldn't be good at all. Is either part of me any stronger than the other? I don't know..I think it depends on the situation or moment. My good side typically speaks out more on what to do in most social situations..where it applies to others' lives. Though on my own life my bad side likes to put in a hella lot of input..so..*shrugsorz*

I have to say that I have a lot of control over my dark side... it takes a lot for me to let it out. I did let it out for most of 2000 and it was very hard to get it back under control... and clean up the mess.

Good question! And very enlighted. I find that my bad side comes out when I'm really mad. I can be very sharp with my comments, and know exactly how to hurt someone the most. And I do. Knowing it's there is the first step to controlling it.

I am also one who doesn't get angry very easy...but if I do ..WATCH OUT!! I become very instinctual you could say. I guess there is no controlling it completely. Thanx for responding!

Amazing question. I think I have found the bad side of myself... it comes out when drinking any type of 1iquor. I don't like it AT ALL. In fact, no one around me likes it either. It's not necessarily my bad side, I prefer to call it my crazy/psycho side. Yeah... it's not pretty. I don't drink 1iquor anymore for this reason.

Do you never have trouble controlling this side once it's out?
