Recently, I was reminded that crises do not insure growth. They only insure that we have choices about how we respond and think. Or think and respond, hopefully in that order.
If thinking and responses are out of whack and stay out of whack, growth is not inevitable with crises. Regression is. So I must be very careful about saying that I've grown in every way from every crisis I've experienced. I hope I have, but there are still places I need to grow. And probably places where I need to stop regressing.
