Growing is a part of life.
Whether we choose to accept it or not, there’s not much to do to stop the process of growing. Honestly, there should be no reason to avoid growth.
Especially if you want the life you’ve always dreamed of.
Growth can be kind of scary for people who live in a bubble. Those people who are content with living the life they already have because they’re afraid of what’s to come.
Some people don’t want to grow because they fear they’ll change too much and lose people they thought would be in their lives forever.
By losing, I mean outgrow.
If you lose people as you find yourself, those people weren’t meant to be in your life in the first place.
Your new mindset doesn’t fit well with theirs and there’s nothing wrong with that. It doesn’t mean you all have to hate each other. You can simply wish them well and continue your journey.
You’ll meet new people along the way that understand your growth. Mostly, because they’re on their journey as well.
When I first noticed my growth, I felt uneasy. A few people I valued aren’t in my life anymore and everything I was used to has changed.
It took me a while to understand that the person I was before was stuck in this small space. My mindset was all about succeeding, but it was basic. It wasn’t as developed as it is now.
Don’t be afraid of growth. We all have to evolve in order to be different from our past.
