Sorrow can help you with inner growth because if you look into your feelings of loss, regret or longing; you will find that they are indicative of something even deeper like dealing with separation or the struggle with detachment from a loved one, or not having done something differently when you could have, and therefore once the opportunity is gone, regretting not taking a chance. By exploring instances of sorrow, you will find the true origin of that sorrow, as well as an opportunity to decide what you want to do about it.

Getting unstuck is something I’m sure we’ve all heard about and experienced; but before we can talk about getting unstuck, we should look at what it really means to get stuck. As is with most things, our mind plays a huge role in this entire stuck/unstuck ordeal. Are there situations in life where we feel like we can’t move forward or maybe that we can’t control and so we feel stuck, sure there are. But since life is always in motion and transforming are we really stuck or is it that we feel stuck?
How we perceive the world, life, and the people around us gives us insights into our feelings and sensations of those things. When we explore them by asking questions we can achieve inner growth because it gives us insight into those feelings and sensations, which brings awareness and that means we have the opportunity to work with those feelings and sensations.
Taking a look at acts of hypocrisy gives you a starting point and insights on areas of disconnect within yourself, which will lead to inner growth since your exploration will allow you to understand what the disconnect is and resolve it.
To master something means you put your all into it and when you take a look at how you feel about mastering things and what you are inclined to master, you uncover things that are important to you, things you’re curious about and want to know more of (so that you can gain full knowledge of them). This type of insight into yourself allows you to ask why these things are important to you and that brings about inner growth because sometimes those things we master might not actually be of interest to us per se; maybe they were brought about by a cause and effect, a reaction of sorts, but it’s not something we are actually into; or the opposite, you find out just how much you love that specific thing you continuously are inclined to do, and rework it into your life as a constant instead of a one time or periodic thing.
Exploring your acts of revenge (if you’ve ever taken it out on someone) allows you dig inside your wounds and find your hurt. The way you use these inner findings to pursue inner growth is to find your peace and harmony with them (with your hurt). Inflicting pain onto another doesn’t reduce or solve the pain one feels, which is why you look to your acts of revenge to understand the hurt and solve the void, and move forward. Hence, inner growth; otherwise it is only a person inflicting intentional pain onto another who is themselves suffering. For revenge taken out on you, understanding what happened and why the other person (who is enacting the revenge) feels hurt by you, is what can lead you to understand if there’s something you should change about your behavior or at least acknowledge that a type of action as the one taken (which hurt this individual) could hurt someone and cause them to seek out revenge on you.
In those moments where we feel desperate and like we’re out of options, we think about many things and this contemplation can help us find out what it is we need to work on most for ourselves. If we take a look within and find our hope, we can also gain strength to take action. Desperate situations bring about inner growth because they help us find ourselves at a deeper level and also get us to gain that strength we need to move forward from within.
Looking at how you give or ask for help is something that brings inner growth because it allows you to explore yourself and the trust you give humanity. Trust to be able and rely on others if you’re in need, and trust in that you are willing to give something in order to help others.
To look at success and what it means to you, as well as acknowledging your successes can further inner growth by getting you to define success for yourself and giving recognition to the things you’ve been able to achieve so far.
The level of determination you put in yourself and the things in your life allow you to pursue inner growth because you will do everything it takes to achieve your end result. Also, determination means you contemplate your choices over time, and this type of exploration brings about additional opportunities for inner growth seeing as it is something you spend time on.
