Deep, Dark and Twisted 😈
I’m not saying I’m this notoriously bad human being. But I’m also not denying that I have a dark side. Everybody does, otherwise you are just lying to yourself.
Everybody has thoughts that absolutely nobody knows about and I’m sure you are terrified that if somebody finds out, you will be shunned. I’m not talking about your truth or dare questions, I’m talking about much deeper, darker and twisted thoughts.
Would you believe me if I told you that it is completely okay to have such thoughts. We have a moral compass that filters these ‘bad’ thoughts and allow us to live peacefully and respectfully in this society.
What if you are able to unleash this beast, this inner dark side that nobody knows about. What if you are able to control and call upon your inner beast at will whenever necessary.
That is what we are here to talk about. Letting it play, allowing it to thrive in the right environments.
I Call Upon My Beast At Will 🔔
Let me give you an example.
EelamWear is a social enterprise my family and I began 6 months ago. It is a premium clothing brand that funds all profits to our very own Empower Eelam initiative. It sounds like a noble thing right?
Well yes to the outside world it most definitely is. We are investing our own time, energy and money to help our people back at home who struggle to make ends meet.
There are many factors that play different roles in this endeavour such as providing quality clothing to my friends and family, building our creativity, bringing people of similar values together and creating change.
I know that I am blessed to have escaped from our war-torn country to a land full of opportunities and I genuinely love helping other people. It makes my heart full and it makes me feel warm and fuzzy.
Now let me tell you that I also do this VERY selfishly. I do it because it adds value to my personal brand. It adds another element to who I am and what I do. People will associate me with this brand and this noble cause that I have embarked upon.
As they should, I mean it only makes sense. I represent the brand whole-heartedly.
This is not something everyone would be ready to admit because of the notion and the fear that society will look at them differently. Why am I admitting that? Because I want to show you all that my dark side, my inner beast was a strong catalyst in having an impact by creating small but significant changes.
What I am trying to say is that, I allowed my inner beast to come out and play to create this social enterprise. I have no problem with that and neither should you. If you are able to take control of your dark side to create significant changes and impact your society for the better, what is stopping you?
Just let it play.
