I have come to a point that I am tired of dealing with certain struggles and ready to move on. When it comes to being “grown”, it has nothing to do with your age but your decision-making. You have plenty of “grown” folks with jobs, families to take care of, and a place to stay but still fall victim to drug addictions, lust, and other temptations. I am not saying that you will not struggle but you should decide to come into maturity. Maturity is confrontation. We must learn how to deal with things so we can surpass them. As children, we made plenty of mistakes. We had authoritative figures to guide us through things and correct us when we were heading in the wrong direction. The day we walk into adulthood is the day we start to be responsible for our own lives and that includes dealing with the things that are holding us back. We must leave the “child mentality” behind thinking that a bandage and a lollipop will make the scar go away because we are grown men and women with real pain. It may be easier for a child to heal because they are still developing but not the same as adults. The band-Aid must be taken off and the scars must be dealt with directly. We must grow up from “being okay” to “being healed”.
This is an excerpt from my book “Be” that I wanted to share with you all. In life, we tend sometimes to overlook the wisdom from our experiences and fail to use them as the “launching pad” for our growth. We need to “grow up” in order to “level up”. As always feel free to comment and share your thoughts!
If you are looking for something interesting to read that will inspire you to move forward and BE the change you want to see, you can purchase my book second book “BE” here on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09C3RKS54
