To deny the bad parts of this identity is ludicrous because its the parts of non negotiable real estate that we are built from. Once we identify the bad parts we can learn to manage them appropriately so as they do not become like pressure held in a volcanic vent, we can learn slow release. The slow release is done in unison with natural breathing cycle of world.
Exactly, and we can appreciate the "bad" parts because it helps us learn, so ironically, even our bad parts, and even our lack of appreciation can be appreciated.

I have to slightly disagree. We are not the SUM of our experiences, we are the EXPERIENCER of our experiences. We EXPERIENCE thoughts, emotions, pain, suffering, joy, etc...
