Glass

Here's a paradox for you. I asked myself a question this week that I've never really asked myself and now I will pose the same question to you. "If I could name one great strength and one great weakness about myself, what would it be?" This is what I realized. The strength would be that I'm very transparent and I think that make me relateable to others. (I hope!) The weakness would be...that I'm very transparent and that makes me vulnerable to others. I'm not sure how I feel about this.
But it is what it is.
I am what I am.
You are what you are.
So what are you?

Too many strengths to list. I think my weakness is that I'm not excellent 100% of the time. Those I refer to as the bad days.

Oooo, I think our strengths are almost always our weaknesses also.

I am very independent, which means I don't rely on anyone else to go places or get things done.

I am very independent, which means I often forget to include people or ask for help when I really need it.

I agree that our greatest strength often goes hand-in-hand with our greatest weakness. I think my strength/weakness is my quietness. It is my strength because it allows me to really listen to those around me, to be still & hear what it being said without jumping right in, talking over the one who needs to be heard and missing what is most important. It is also my weakness, because being quiet often means you are not heard, and over time, you just stop trying to *be* heard.
