Transitional/growing moments in life teach us who we are and who we need to become. Hardships uproot us, digging up our souls which might show BAD roots we need to clip out or sometimes our inner strengths we were hiding below ground. We can become new people. We can learn to squeeze out the superficial, ugly or selfish parts of our lives to replace it with better things. We grow to be better humans. If life was going perfectly we would not see the need to change or progress. Change needs to happen in life---some of us are good at soul searching on our own while others require uprooting to change. Regardless, look at what life is pruning and growing in your soul. Does it need tending to?
