“Growth begins when we begin to accept our weaknesses.”— Jean Vanier
Accepting our weaknesses means that we’re first admitting to ourselves that we have imperfections and/or limitations. For us to grow, we must confront the reality that we have limitations. We don’t have to always yield to them but we can work around them. They don’t have to directly affect our lives in a negative way. We can use them to our advantage and being a role model to others whose having a hard time accepting their weaknesses. Growing is having the understanding that we can find other ways to better ourselves without finding a reason to not push ourselves. It is very easy to find a reason not to improve our situation when we’re only looking at our weaknesses and not looking at the possibility for growth. If we see possibility in ourselves, then our blinds are open to see opportunities.
