Darkness in man manifest in various ways and dimensions and you can’t be sure to have none except you critically look inward and observe some basics for your life.
The dimensions of darkness are of different categories but have similarities in the way they manifest. This is not limited to any age or gender because it can enslave the young as well as the aged.
Few of the darkness and how they operate will be discussed while comments are sincerely welcomed.
Darkness 1: Fear
Fear is a psychological response of the mind (brain) to unexpected circumstances and could come due to lack of confidence and/or believe in oneself.
Fear causes over 80% of the chaos and misbehaviour in our society. The psychologist would refer to it as the enemy of the mind.
If you are in anyway enslaved to fear, it’s a sign of a darkness and should therefore be mitigated.
We cannot totally eradicate fear but can mitigate (i.e reconstruct) it by harnessing our mind with enough confidence in all situations even when you are not sure what to expect.
Darkness 2: Unforgiving Self (Guilt)
The increasing number of suicide we have in the country today are either a product of self-guilt over past failures or excessive attachment to one’s past without letting go of the guilt.
The truth is that acknowledging your bad deeds is good but it posses serious danger when you do not forgive yourself.
There are records of people who commits suicide due to the guilt so damming they have concerning trivial things.
The solution lies in just telling someone how you feel about what you did. Nevertheless, the sad part of it is that your listener may be disappointed in you and could cause more harm.
That is why an experienced and matured individual could be of great help in this case.
Darkness 3: Excessive Curiosity
There is an adage which says curiosity kills the cat. Curiosity as the name implies can Mar the life of an individual if not cautioned.
Addiction is a serious problem in our society today and the primary causes of it has been curiosity to have a bite of this and that.
