Sometimes I wonder why some people have greater personal growth than others? What situations do we have to live to grow? Is the older the more personal growth?
There are times when I find answers in books, people or even experiences. Where I realize that personal growth is achieved through decisions, attitudes and activities that we carry out in our day to day.
My favorite phrase from somos is, “Within us exists a whole world. We are much more than we imagine.” I think that if we all read this sentence carefully, we would question ourselves about our world, and the world of the people we love. How is my inner world? What colors, moments and dreams is it composed of? What other world does it look like?
Psychology says that human beings are made up of eight dimensions: physical, emotional, cognitive, communicative, social, aesthetic, ethical, moral, and spiritual. Thinking about them, I can imagine my inner world divided into these 8 parts, some bigger than others. But I think of the inner world of a person close to me, and their largest dimension is my smallest dimension.
And it is here that I realize what personal growth is, which I would define as: “an increase in my eight dimensions”. I believe that a person's personal growth depends on the size of each of their dimensions, and the more experiences we dedicate to each of them, the bigger we can be as people.
If I only dedicate time to my social and emotional dimension, I will not be able to have an integral growth, because I would have 6 dimensions left to work on.
How do I strengthen each of my dimensions? How much attention do I give them? What can I do to have greater growth? How is my inner world? These are some of the questions you will come across when experiencing we are dimensions.
