There are many facets in your mind. These facts can be seen as dark or light, positive or negative. It is most important to remember that dark and light are not bad and good. Bad and Good are useless terms when describing the nature of your mind. What is helpful in your development is awareness of which area of your thinking and therefore your life reside within dark or light areas. This awareness allows you to truly see things as they are an not as your predisposed to seeing them. The gap is your awareness which comes about with mental control. Awareness and mental control will provide many answers you are seeking. My highest blessings.
