Emotional Growth In Love And Relationships: “We can’t become what we need to be, by remaining who we are.” – Oprah Winfrey.
We are butterflies. Going through different metamorphoses in our lifespan. For a butterfly to fully thrive and flourish into what it was meant to be it must undergo four stages. The egg, the lava, the pupa, and lastly, the adult.
How many stages have you covered as you are working towards your emotional growth? Are you just getting started? Are you at the end of the rope?
“That which we need the most will be found where we least want to look.” -Carl Jung.
Emotional growth begins when you face all that you are afraid of that encompasses you. When you are self-aware of all your feelings. When you understand the heights of your frustration, fury, love, passion, anger, laughter, joy, happiness, and grief. How do you express & manage these feelings…?
It’s imperative to learn this about yourself because it will steer you toward the right partner. Being emotionally aware evolves into being unapologetically yourself and loving the person you have become.
Do not create an illusion of your intent. Accept the pain, the discomfort, allow yourself to feel it, feel the loss of lovers who up and left. They weren’t worthy of the legendary person you were meant to become. Your scars are beautiful. Your pain is beautiful. Your challenges are beautiful. When you ignore them, you bar yourself from enjoying the areas of your life that growth would occupy.
We are plants. We have nutritive souls. In order to sprout beautifully, we need to be watered from time to time. We need to be touched; we need to be loved. We need to experience changes.
You & I, need to feel the sun.
