Self-Improvement is… well… the art of improving yourself.
It’s a personal process that involves self-reflection, humility, and the courage to look at the things that aren’t working in your life.
Some of you have made such a decision. You’ve decided, say, that you need to be more assertive, more understanding, more loving, more open.. Or that you need to look for ways to care for yourself, be your own strong person, create happiness and well-being in your life….etc
That’s all great. And I’ve been on this path long enough to know about the pitfalls too.
It gets lonely. And even dark at times. Because you’re doing something nobody can do for you.
Self-improvement implies seeing yourself in an honest light. And sometimes, what you see does not seem “improvable”. Like: You’re this way, and couldn’t possibly expect to be a different way!
But see when that happens, the whole process is essentially turned upside down.
Because now, you’re not dealing with the inherently positive and invigorating challenge that is personal growth.
Now you’re fighting what you perceive as being a losing battle. And that’s when self-improvement is more exhausting/depressing than anything.
That’s why I want to share with you an understanding, of what it takes to complete self-improvement projects. To find the answers you heart yearns for, and move on with your life.
Without feeling like a lone ranger on an impossible mission. 🙂
Self-improvement is a noble endeavor that is as rewarding as it is challenging, and that’s what makes it worth it.
