I think back to some situations that have occurred lately, and how I have handled them. And then I take a second to think about how I would have handled the same situations a year ago.
The reactions are MEASURABLY different. Not me tooting my own horn, just the truth.
My coping mechanism now, versus a year ago, are TOTALLY different.
True, things still hurt (because I am after all, still a human), but man, I have grown, and it is evident. And it’s a beautiful thing!
Personal growth is a helluva drug! 🙂
