Going through different obstacles in your life can lead to reminiscing once you’ve overcome what you’ve been faced with. They will be both good and bad memories, but they both lead to the same outcome. That outcome is called Personal Growth.
Personal growth comes in many forms. It can be more patience, more determination, more guard around your heart, a change in the company you keep, or even an epiphany on the things that you want to accomplish in life. This list goes on and on, but the important thing to remember is that what ever feeling comes to you it’s a step in progression for you personally.
Along with progressing emotionally mental progression also happens. Your head space almost completely changes. You start to think of more important things pertaining to your well-being. YOU become more important to you. You will focus more on your own happiness.
I myself am currently reveling in my own personal growth. Over the past couple years I have been through quite a bit. Some events a couple close friends and one family member (my mommy) knows about, but there are other events that not even they know that I wrestled with on an almost daily basis. When I had to go to see a counselor for a class of mine I never thought in a million years that I had so many things that I needed to get off my chest.
I’ve spent a huge chunk of my life worrying about others and putting them first that I did not know how to put me first, or could tell people what made me happy. I’ve had my epiphany recently. I am in the process of doing what needs to be done for ME. I’m learning and doing the things that make me happy. It is a little difficult sometimes, because there are those who are used to me going above and beyond for them, but haven’t done the same in return for me.
In my personal growth I have gotten a bit more patient, I’m learning to curb some of my bad habits, and I’m finding my passion and things that I am good at. For the most part I am finding myself. I am doing what makes me happy whether or not others agree with what I am doing. I’ve come to realize that they do not have to agree. They do not have to agree because they do not have to wake up everyday and live my life. I may not know what my future may hold, but I know that I;m going to have find out doing what I want to do, and not what EVERYONE else wants me to do.
Acquiring personal growth is an amazing feeling. The best part of about it is the potential of what you can do with it.
