Happy birthday to me.

It’s my birthday today.

A lot has happened over the last year. Some of it good, some of it bad. I’ve survived it, obviously, and I feel like I’ve grown up a bit more. Gained a bit more wisdom.

Thinking about it has brought back to mind something that I’ve thought about before, and I think it still holds true.

There isn’t any true growth without pain.

By “growth”, I typically mean emotional/mental/spiritual growth (maturity), though I think even physical growth tends to follow this rule.

Can anyone think of any exceptions?
