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.
Do we listen when our heart tells us something? That gut feeling that overrides your thoughts about a situation.
How many of us actually listen to that feeling or do we still let our brains do the thinking? What makes that gut feeling irrelevant to us to where we feel it can’t be trusted?
I am guilty of dismissing these feelings, but I’m starting to wonder should I actually listen. I get so caught up telling myself, “I know what I’m doing”, that maybe my body is telling me to slow down and feel that I’m on the right path.
