Many people aspire to grow into the best version of themselves. They study, read books, eat healthily, exercise regularly, and do everything to evolve mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. But how can one know when there is progress and they are becoming the best versions of themselves? Here are 8 uncomfortable signs that show just that.
1. THEY LITERALLY FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE
The definite sign that a person is evolving and changing into a better human being is that they start feeling uneasy. They experience physical, mental, and emotional discomfort, because when one’s life changes, it takes time to get accustomed to the new state of mind.
2. THEIR PERSPECTIVE ON LIFE SHIFTS
Their transformation is so real and profound that it changes their whole life. It may happen suddenly, or it may take longer, but either way, the transformation is needed for everyone who wants to be the best they can be. So, when their perspective on things changes, so are they. And they are becoming better.
3. THEY CUT OFF ANY TOXICITY FROM THEIR LIFE
They realize they don’t have time to deal with toxic people. They cut off any type of unhealthy and toxic connections and relationships from their lives and in turn, their life changes for the better.
4. THEY SOMETIMES FIND IT PAINFUL TO SIT WITH THEIR THOUGHTS
They make time to sit alone with their thoughts and listen to their inner voice. Sometimes, it is painful for them to be in their thoughts and be completely vulnerable and honest with themselves, but it is vital for their self-growth.
5. THEY START TAKING RISKS AND FORCE GROWTH UPON THEMSELVES
One of the strangest things when it comes to personal growth and development is that a person starts craving it once they experience how exciting and good the end results feel. The feeling is addicting and therefore they begin taking even more risk and go into the depths that once terrified them.
6. THEY HAVE A TOUGH TIME DEALING WITH THOSE WHO DON’T UNDERSTAND THEIR EVOLUTION
There are always people who will try to bring a person down and stop their progress just because they have a hard time understanding and accepting how much they have changed. Sadly, when someone grows as a person, others tend to get scared and jealous that they are losing the previous version of them.
7. THEY REALIZE THINGS ABOUT THEMSELVES THAT THEY HAVE NEVER SEEN BEFORE
Through journaling, meditation, self-reflection, reading, or whatever method they used, they will start seeing parts of them that they have never seen before. Things about themselves that were buried inside of them for so long suddenly emerge. Their whole life unfolds in front of them and they feel relieved.
8. THEY UNDERSTAND THAT LIFE IS ALL ABOUT THE JOURNEY, NOT THE DESTINATION
While some people get annoyed when they realize they won’t get where they thought were going, people who are in the process of becoming the best version of themselves, live in the here and the now. They understand that the best thing about life is the journey and not the destination. That it is about being grateful and appreciating all the little things that happen along the journey. That’s the most liberating feeling in the world.
