A big sign of personal growth is realizing that you are dealing with things in your life better than you used to, but realizing this only after the situation occurs or at least much further into it. (As opposed to actively having to figure out how to mentally handle every new thing at its start.)
When you work hard enough to be a better, kinder, more centered you, eventually it comes more easily.
I don’t just write about trying to live a better, more positive, freer, karma friendly life. I try to live it to the best of my own abilities. I’ve spent so much time, focusing on getting rid of negative thoughts, working towards better karma, happiness, and overall balance, that I can now do things that would have been much more challenging in the past, often without even thinking about them. I just start innately doing the best possible thing. Whether it’s being kind to people I’ve have issues with in the past or dealing with the big stuff life throws my way that I can’t control with as much grace and dignity as possible. (I’ve also seen a remarkable shift in my stress levels lowering.)
Be your own Architect, build your self up to be centered, clam and kind. Negativity is easy, but it will never very make you the best you can be.
