This is a post by one of my favourite bloggers about one of the most relevant topics in my life today – getting past what others think and getting past the hurts their smallness and inability to understand can place on your soul and REALLY LIVING. There is a don’t-care element to confidence that I battle to maintain. It isn’t the ugly defiance of arrogance but the calm and unthinking indifference or polite inattention to the complexes of others. This poem captures the truth about a few things –
- Growth is a personal thing. You alone determine how much your person grows.
- Growth attracts jealousy, resistence, and challenge from unexpected places.
- Those unexpected places DO NOT MATTER. Growth is still priority over them.
- There is nothing wrong with cutting loose the anchors that certain friendships place on your growth.
Love it Hank. Keeping an eye out for more of your poetic inspirations!
