To define one’s nature is something that allows you to also look beyond those definitions. When going beyond the lines of what defines you, you initiate a path towards inner growth because you do not stop at the definition set in front you.

Being judgmental is something worth exploring because you want to take an in-depth look at those strong opinions. You want to find out where they come from and how they affect you so that you may pursue inner growth. This dive into your judgmental thoughts can bring about changes of opinions, as well as make clear why you have formulated those judgments in the first place.
Your relationship with possession, indifferently from what is owned, reveals more about yourself than is visible at first. When questioning that relationship to taking control of something or owning something, you find yourself uncovering if this possession indicates a need to have for fear or a need to have so that you can control, and if that’s the case why so; or maybe you’ll find that possession in the sense of control is not something you identify with at all. This process of exploration brings about inner growth by putting yourself in a position of awareness of potential needs and/or the ability to take action and change your relationship to possession in your life as a whole.
Whether a gift is an object you’ve received or given, or whether it’s a specific ability or circumstance you are grateful to have and therefore see as a gift, matters for inner growth from an explorative position in the feelings that surround those gifts and the opinions you have of them. Looking into your thought process and perspective about a gift gives you insights on yourself and an in-depth view of things you may learn from or want to change.
Each ability you have is a trait that you can use to find out more about yourself, but it’s also an opportunity to add to the list of abilities you’d like to acquire. Exploration and learning new abilities brings inner growth on a practical and internal level.
In moments of loneliness a person has time to reflect on themselves and their surroundings. This provides deep understanding and connection to one’s self, which can bring about discoveries and changes to what is around you that leads to inner growth.
Knowing your identity means exploring it from different angles, even questioning the characteristics that are a part of it to deepen your exploration. Throughout this process, you pursue inner growth by developing the identity you feel fits you, the one that is in sync with your heart.
A lot of what we believe is taught to us through our culture, but once we become aware of this it also means we are able to take a step back and explore our thought processes, behaviors, and so on. This helps us to keep an open mind about our feelings if not in tune with our beliefs, and it also allows us to stay open to different cultures; both add to our person and lead to inner growth due to our openness to consider something else instead of being closed off to it.
There are different levels of negativity, but no matter the level, if you are able to explore it and find out what it’s about, you can use that moment to further inner growth. Understanding brings a sense of security, exploration is what helps to understand and from there actions can be taken that help you to move forward.
If you are on an inner growth journey, spirituality is something that comes into play naturally since you’re looking within and therefore beyond your physical body and material aspects in life.
