Timing doesn't mean your chosen timing. It means when divine timing chose it to be so.
Readiness doesn't mean you feel equipped on every level it means you have reach the point where you want to dig in.
We can't push our emotions or self worth issues away forever or pack our trauma up for eternity at some point we GET to deal with it.
If you know you have unprocessed emotions, self worth struggles and trauma you don't have to face it now. Maybe those 3 things aren't aligned and that is all good.
The universe will always keep giving you chances to confront and heal.
Know this, when you do decide to do the work of facing your shadow self you will come out stronger, lighter and more authentic on the other side.
