Category: Personal Growth
Articles dedicated to personal growth and development through a greater understanding of ourselves, our actions and our emotions.
All posts within this personal growth category vary wildly. But, each post offers an enhancement of knowledge surrounding how we function as humans.
With this, we are better equipped to handle life’s hardship.
Resilience is not easy to achieve and self-improvement is HARD.
It requires raising your awareness. It requires actively improving your emotional intelligence. And, it requires being willing to sit with the pain that can come from really learning who you are.
I do believe that a willingness to accept and be open to the struggles that life throws our way is key to mastering our mindset. To taking control of our emotions and responses.
Becoming aware of the reasons behind our actions, addressing the truth behind how we feel and finding positive solutions is what makes for a positive existence.
True personal growth can be attained when we can look at every aspect of ourselves.
Especially the ugly bits, before acknowledging them without judgement.
It means accepting the struggle.
It means learning to understand and accept when we are wrong so we can improve, so we can become resilient.
