The shadow and light of being human and gifted is complex, and within our gifted families our individual shadow and light elements can manifest essentially as a house of mirrors.  Strengths can have shadow sides and individual challenge or shadow may paradoxically be the best access we have to connect to and meaningfully integrate some of our highest capacity.
