Strength vs. Weakness

I have always wondered why the phrase, “My strengths are my weakness”, existed. I personally think this phrase can be worded both ways because my weaknesses are sometimes my strengths.

I am a very caring and giving person, sometimes too much. I often hear that this is a weakness of mine. Is it though? Is it weak to have a big heart, to be empathetic, or to care? Or is it a strength of mine that I might need to master?

Our weaknesses are our strengths, own them, and master them. I think the only weakness someone could truly have is giving up, to not live, learn, or take advantage of the opportunities given, to not strive to be the best you can be.


One thought on “Strength vs. Weakness

  1. This reminds me of the saying “you’re only as strong as your weakest link.” But that can be misleading. You associate a weakness with failure but that doesn’t have to be true. It’s a spectrum. Weakest doesn’t mean weak, it just means less strong, but you can work on it to make it stronger.
