We oftentimes can find ourselves wondering about ways in which we can go about growing, adapting, and learning as human beings. Of course, contemplation like this can be a benefit, because it can allow us to learn about strategies in which to develop advantageous and positive ways of interacting with this sometimes chaotic world. I would also say it’s good to not get too lost in the technique of contemplating how to grow adaptively in our society, although when it comes to survival strategies, it is often human nature to do it anyway.
Practicing behaviors that are helpful for us can allow us to develop a strategy of interaction that becomes easier the more and more we do those behaviors. This is especially of value when we find ourselves in stressful situations. The more we practice an adaptive skill, the more we learn. And that can only lead to positive outcomes and results. I have to say though that it is usually also good to analyze whether what we can be striving for will actually work for the wellbeing of both ourselves and those we interact with, or if we should decide on more advantageous skills. Stress and challenges are a normal part of human interactions. The more we recognize this, the more we may be able to get a strong grip on what it takes to persevere through all the journeys that lie ahead of us.
