How much compassion you have towards others and the situations they go through reveals the degree to which you can put yourself in another person’s shoes, but also how considerate you are for others. Understanding where this consideration comes from and how you are able to relate to others to whatever the degree is, helps you gain an understanding of yourself; but also can bring you to work on those areas so that you may expand your compassion towards more and more people. This type of exploration brings about inner growth since there’s getting to know your compassion from your heart, and also those attributes which may not be from your heart and therefore reveal changes you may choose to make moving forward.

Failure is something that assists inner growth because it is in these moments that we bring to the forefront our issues with ourselves, our life, our fears, and so on.

Failure also allows you to see what else you need to do to continue your pursuit of whatever project or thing you’re working on.

This exploration also allows for steps to be taken in order to overcome those troubled thoughts and/or fears.
