Read full description of the books:
An expert on the "dark side", Debbie Ford sheds light on the aspects of our selves that we unconsciously (or consciously) hide or deny -- those dark qualities that we've buried along our way to becoming "good people" -- which can be sources of strength and joy when recognized and reconciled.Debbie Ford believes that we each hold within us a trace of every human characteristic that exists, the capacity for every human emotion.
We are born with the ability to express this entire spectrum of characteristics. But, Ford points out, our families and our society, send us strong messages about which ones are "good" and "bad". So when certain impulses arise, we deny them instead of confronting them, giving them a healthy voice, then letting them go.
It is to these feelings that Ford turns our attention, these parts of our selves that don't fit the personae we have created for the rest of the world. She shows us the effects of living in the dark, of keeping all our supposedly unsavory impulses under wraps. We find ourselves disproportionately frustrated and angry at the selfishness of friends, the laziness of colleagues, the arrogance of siblings. When we are unable to reconcile similar impulses in ourselves, Ford explains, we waste our own energy judging others instead of empathizing. Bost most important, we deny ourselves the power and freedom of living authentically.
Through the stories and exercises in The Dark Side of the Light Chasers, Debbie Ford shows us not only how to recognize our hidden emotions, but also how to find the gifts they offer us. The very impulses we most fear may be the key to what is lacking in our lives.
