We are conditioned to fear our pain, wounds, and shame, which is a pity because it's exactly these things that hold our greatest gifts and straightest path to what we want externally.
When we bury whatever's in the shadow, we deny the greatest parts of ourselves and keep them trapped, where they fester and gain momentum from the act of suppression.
That doesn't mean that they stay quiet.....instead, they find ways to get our attention, by causing "problems" with increasing velocity and tenor until we HAVE to pay attention, often without guidelines on how to address them truly.
There is nothing to fear or deny - these are parts of ourselves that show us the way to fully integrate who we are - the fact that they are in the shadow is a clue that they are the flipside of our light.
Denying that or any part of ourselves, denies our ability to be wholly aligned with our North Star. We stay incomplete.
