Personal Growth

It’s important in life to have people in your inner circle that care about you. Yet, it’s key to have people that will not just tell you what you want to hear but what you need to hear as well for your personal growth.

Furthermore, in order to grow, a person has to come out of their comfort zone and be open to constructive criticism. However, it won’t take place if you just surround yourself with people that just know as much as you.

What is something in your life that you achieved by coming out of your comfort zone that helped with your personal growth?

  1. This is absolutely true! I love my mom with all of my heart, but she just goes with whatever she thinks I want to hear. I have to call the people that will be honest with me no matter what.

    1. Really?… It’s usually friends over parents that do that, why some people surround themselves on purpose with friends that will just tell them what they wan to hear always. Also, my mom is one of those people… why she rarely talk to me about important issues, because I’ll let her know in a nice way if I feel she could of handle a situation better than how she did…

  2. Keep it up!

    This post touches on the axiomatic truth that nothing was ever achieved by staying in your comfort zone, which is seldom a truth that is ever accepted these days.
    Everyone has something to teach us about our journey.
    If you operate under the assumption that ‘everyone is you pushed out,’ then even people who continually tell you what you want to hear can teach you something about yourself. The key to figuring out what is for you to learn is to pay attention to what people say, and see how it clicks with that subtle inner voice that often gets washed away with the din of waking day.

    Sometimes people who tell you what you want to hear do not really care about what you have to say at all, and are only validating you so that you can validate them.

    I learned that the hard way.

    While stepping out of your comfort zone IS important perhaps listening to that inner voice is the top priority above all else.
    It will not ever steer you wrong, and is the only validation that you will ever truly need.

    1. Thanks for the feedback…. Yeah, I’ve learn some people just want to be sold some hope and not willing to get out of their comfort zone…. but nothing changes if nothing changes…

  3. So true post. Giving and receiving what you want to hear helps not the receiver nor giver. Everyone does need a critical and honest person in their live.
    Thanks also for the follow. Appreciate it.

    1. Thanks for leaving feedback first off. However, I got to disagree with you slightly…. Unfortunately, most of the time people don’t bother to tell a friend or family member what they need to hear when that friend/family member gives them random gifts because they don’t want to risk that being cut off by saying something the person might not like. Yet, it doesn’t help either person long term wise.

  4. I believe your disagreement was exactly what I echoed. We said the same things in different words. Or, maybe I just got you wrong. If so, my apologies.✌🏾

    1. The only reason I disagreed slightly is because I feel it does help the person short term to stay on the yes sir/ma’am payroll so to speak by going along with whatever their friend or family member says, even if they feel they are wrong. However, I forgot to put that I agree with you that long term it doesn’t help either side in the end.
