Your Growth is a Good Thing

Understand that some people are only able to handle older versions of you. They will turn away from who you currently are because they don’t know what growth looks like. But you are not required to live out older roles in order to make other people comfortable.” – iambrillyant

Just in case you needed to hear this today …

Your growth is a good thing.

It is wholesome and life-giving.

Keep on going after what is best for you.

You only have one life to live, so live it to the full.

  1. To add, if I may, to David’s comment: it’s only those people who realize inner growth can take place anytime, long after your physical growth ends, that can be comfortable with the real you. A lot of people think after a person has reached 18 or 19 or so, that your personality and inner growth is finished. They are the ones who won’t be able to accept a person who is growing inwardly, and may even put the person down. But a testimony to inner growth is that the person won’t accept their put-downs.

    • That’s a good point. Some people keep us stuck in a time warp, and refuse to relate to us as the person we actually are today – even although we might be 40, 50, or 60 years old. In those situations, it’s refusing to be drawn back into the past, and to refuse to be treated as we were years ago, that confirms we’re a different person now.
