Self Improvement / Personal Growth

Let us strive to improve ourselves, for we cannot remain stationary; one either progresses or retrogrades. - Mme. Du Deffand

Personal growth becomes the focal theme of a person's life as they grow. Growth has different meanings for different people. It could be succeeding in their work-life while for others it could be improving relations with their close ones. This inimitable definition of growth is what makes every person unique. The rat race of the 21st century that everyone seems to be caught up in has clouded our decisions. We keep social media influencers and successful people on a pedestal and compare ourselves to them. This not only shatters our self-concept greatly but also makes us believe that our perception of the world through rose-coloured glasses is the real one. Social media does provide us with a platform to connect with others, but we need to draw a line and learn how to separate socialization from social media. As much as self-improvement is personal work, it also depends on our interactions with the people around us. We use social interaction as a 'mirror' and base ourselves on observing how others perceive it. This concept, known as the 'looking-glass self', was given by Charles Cooley.
