Growing Through Struggles.
Life is full of challenges, and sometimes it can feel like we are constantly struggling just to keep up. However, it’s important to recognize that not all struggles are created equal. In fact, some of the most difficult times in our lives are actually the moments when we are growing the most.
So how can you tell the difference between struggling and growing? Here are some things to keep in mind:
Struggling is about survival, while growing is about thriving.
When you are struggling, you are often in survival mode. You are just trying to get through the day, to keep your head above water, and to make it to the next day. When you are growing, on the other hand, you are thriving. You are expanding your horizons, exploring new opportunities, and taking risks that will help you reach your full potential.
Struggling is reactive, while growing is proactive.
When you are struggling, you are often reacting to the challenges that come your way. You may feel like you are constantly putting out fires and dealing with problems as they arise. When you are growing, however, you are proactive. You are setting goals, making plans, and taking steps to create the life you want.
Struggling is about limitation, while growing is about possibility.
When you are struggling, it can be easy to feel limited by your circumstances. You may feel like you don’t have the resources or the support you need to overcome your challenges. When you are growing, however, you are focused on possibility. You are constantly looking for ways to expand your options and to create new opportunities for yourself.
So, the next time you are going through a difficult time, ask yourself: Am I struggling, or am I growing? If you are struggling, remember that it’s okay to ask for help, to take a break, and to focus on self-care. But if you are growing, embrace the challenge, stay focused on your goals, and trust that you have the resilience and the strength to overcome any obstacle.
Remember, growth often requires discomfort and challenges, but the end result is always worth it. So, keep pushing forward, and know that you are not just struggling, you are growing.
