Sometimes I’ve jumped.
Sometimes I felt like I was pushed.
If we knew what was ahead, how many of us would proceed?
Looking back, though, I can say I wouldn’t be where or who I am without having gone through it all.
Whether I jumped or whether I was pushed, I’m better for it.
Because I’m more myself and more free than I’ve ever been.
So, of course spiritual growth can hurt, because growth means venturing beyond the comfortable space we’re in.
