Grow, from unexpected places

If you don’t like what someone has to say about you, make sure you’re not rejecting it because of who’s saying it.

The truth about us is often spoken by our enemies, regardless of their motivation to do so.

Growth is often experienced at the hands of those we hold in contempt.

When you surround yourself with people that make you feel good about who you are, it’s inevitable that the ones to call you out when you’re wrong will be outside of that circle.

But that’s where the greatest potential for growth lies.

Growth is possible with those who see our actions for what they are, not for what it is within the context of how they know us to be.

As sincere and well-meaning as loved ones can be, they’re not always good for growth because their affection or unwavering loyalty prevents them from seeing our blind spots.

Try to maintain a healthy balance of critics in your life.
