A quote that got me thinking 💭

I was scrolling when I came across this quote that got me thinking:
“The degree to which a person can grow is directly proportional to the amount of truth they can accept about themselves without running away.”
Everytime I feel like I grew emotionally and/or mentally, it is because I’ve come to accept something new that I previously didn’t know or weren’t ready to accept. When I accept that I am not always selfless, I grow in my ability to take care of myself instead of always putting my needs last.
Anyone has similar thoughts? ><
