Introduction to Personal Growth

As I mentioned in my “About Me” tab, this blog will be centered around “Personal Growth”. And before you say it, yes, I am aware that there are 1,000 other blogs centered around this exact topic, however, I want to make mine different! Personal Growth has been something I’ve been trying to accomplish for about …3 years, but it has only been this past year where I’ve put in an actual genuine effort that allowed myself to grow as a person.

Personal growth can mean many things, but it honestly relates to one thing, maturity. The key to personal growth is self-love and self-reflection, then there are multiple steps (not in order of course) to take to become a better you! Most people don’t realize they need to grow as a person until something traumatizing or heartbreaking has occurred in their life. Other people know themselves, and ignoring the fact they need to change, but knowing they need growth in their lives.

For me? It was more about self-reflection. Have you ever had a person in life that weighed you down emotionally, physically and mentally? Well, I did, and this person is the reason for me acknowledging the need for personal growth. For years (as I mentioned already) I’ve known that I needed to mature but it wasn’t until recently that I took the steps to implement the steps to maturity. Both points relate to my life and relate to the reason I decided I need to…well…grow up and work on my internal self. I found out things about myself that I particularly didn’t admire, hoping no one would admire it either. The day I acknowledged a certain individual thought it was acceptable to pick and choose when it was all right to enter and leave out of my life was the day I decided I need to work on myself. Why? Because, once I was told that “The way others treat you reflects how you feel about yourself”, and then I chose to self-reflect on how I honestly felt about myself, during that reflection I discovered that I was not happy internally and that is a reason why it was acceptable for that individual to treat me that way. Once I absolutely fell in love with myself, I was fully aware of the childish decisions I’ve made and that I wanted to become different, but better, person. And that is what prompted me to implement personal growth within myself.

As you read this blog I will incorporate not only my first-hand experiences but experiences of others and why they chose to work on their internal self when they did. I plan to execute this in many ways that are not limited to just writing blog posts. And I hope that this blog will help you to succeed at your goal: personal growth. So, come on, let’s grow together!

    I love that you talk about learning to love yourself and also being able to really work on learning to love yourself. I really enjoyed the quote about “how you let others treat you shows how you feel about yourself.” Awesome self discovery and it takes a very strong person to do this and also share their experiences! Excited to read your blogs and learn more!
