Embracing Accountability

My desire is to go deeper and no longer settle with avoidance.

A valuable lesson to learn: failure does not have to paralyze you. You can be corrected and be respected. Your response to accountability can truly make or break your ability to grow.

As iron sharpens iron,
so one person sharpens another.
-Proverbs 27:17

No correction is comfortable, but warranted confrontation is necessary. Whether it is a social issue, inter-personal conflict, work-related, family-related, etc., if we cannot bear to receive a challenge to our way of thinking or living we will inevitably become stagnant and start regressing. We sacrifice connection if we are unwilling to traverse uncomfortable conversations. 

What I have learned is that a healthy level of self-awareness and an understanding of community dynamics makes the pain of growth bearable. Would you want to continue in harmful patterns? Do you want to be a part of the movement towards wholeness? Do you want to make deeper levels of lasting connection?

A mentor of mine has said that relationships have the opportunity to level up when conflict takes place. My desire is to go deeper and no longer settle with avoidance.
