My Weakness

That deed which in our guilt we today
call weakness, will appear tomorrow
as an essential link in the
complete chain of Man.

  1. There is a saying that weakness leads to strength as without weakness strength would not exist. Sort of like how without failure we cannot truest succeed.

    • Depending on the individual it may do that. It is a challenge, and not weakness (in my opinion)
      that leads to strength. Challenge makes someone take action. A weak person is not able to.

      • Lol well that too but I only say that because I myself gained strength from weakness. So I have to disagree that a weak person is not able to take action. I think it a matter of the mind. We can chose to stay weak or we can chose to overcome our weakness and transform it to strength. Weakness only limits us if we allow it to. Life is what we make it after all lol🙂✌️

      • Well challenges are a part of life and weaknesses are challenges the universe gave us to overcome. They are interconnected. It’s just wording per say but I don’t agree nor disagree with what you are saying lol everything is interconnected after all. And weakness is not a bad thing as it takes strength to admit to our weaknesses. Everyone has them as we are perfectly imperfect lol😁 I believe just as love and hate are strongly intertwined, as most opposites are, that it takes strength to overcome the challenges of weakness and weakness challenge us to discover our strengths. And lol I agree with you that I wasn’t just weak because I was strong too. Sort of like how yin and yang balance each other out creating a magnificent harmony in the unification of opposites

    • If a plant needed help, would you start at the leaf, would you start at the stem,
      would it be the branch, or the roots?
      Love and blessings to you dear Sue. Enjoy this last week of Spring.

      • I am reminded of Confucius and when he said
        ” To put the world right in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must first put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must first cultivate our personal life; we must first set our hearts right.”
        Our hearts are at our core.. And the root of all our problems.. Sending Much love my friend..
        Dreamwalker.. xxx Still trying to walk the dream.. All be it in her own world.. ❤

      • I did dear Eddie a wonderful family affair with loved ones gathered around and lots of fresh air in the garden, due to our wonderful heat-wave at the moment..
        And wishing you a wonderful New Week my friend.. 🙂
