Everyone is trying to be better

We’re all trying to learn and experience new things.

There are several ways to talk about this.

In the literal sense of the word, it feels like you are trying to “improve” yourself, which is why it is often termed “personal improvement”.

However, this makes it sound like there’s something wrong with you.

On the other hand, personal “growth” makes it sounds like what’s there is right, but it can develop into something even better.
