“The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.”
― C. JoyBell C
The person in life that you will always be with the most, is yourself. Because even when you are with others, you are still with yourself, too! When you wake up in the morning, you are with yourself, laying in bed at night you are with yourself, walking down the street in the sunlight you are with yourself. What kind of person do you want to walk down the street with? What kind of person do you want to wake up in the morning with? What kind of person do you want to see at the end of the day before you fall asleep? Because that person is yourself, and it’s your responsibility to be that person you want to be with. So, strive for growth.
Growth involves understanding life. When a person is little i.e. a kid, he/she has a set of ideals, standards, criteria, plans, outlooks and think according to which life is going to happen to him/her. But life isn’t like that, for anybody; you can’t fall in love with a standard, you have to fall in love with a person. You can’t live in criteria, you have to live your life. You can’t wait for your plans to materialize, because they may never materialize the way you think they will. You can’t wait to watch your ideals and standards walk up to you because you can’t know what’s yours until you have it. Always take the first chance in case you never get a second one, but growing up takes that even one step further, growing up means that you have to hold on to what you have when you have it.
“Growth is simply learning how to suffer gracefully, elegantly and not letting your pain completely tear you apart.”
