Slow healing and personal development are common. This transforming process makes it hard to quantify success.
Self-Reflection Over Blame: One of the first signs of emotional growth is the shift from automatically blaming yourself or others when things don't work out.
Identifying Feelings and Needs: Emotional development entails deeper awareness of your inner world. Your curiosity in your internal state makes you recognize your emotions and wants.
Embracing Rejection and Failure: As you recover, you may approach rejection and failure differently. Instead of self-worth markers, you regard them as typical life features designed to stimulate progress.
Respecting limits: Accepting limits imposed by loved ones is a sign of emotional progress. You don't take boundary-setting personally since you know everyone protects their emotional well-being differently.
Discovering Emotional Triggers: Finally, you learn to recognize your emotional triggers without fighting them.
