Growth begins when we begin to accept our own weakness.
We either accept weaknesses in good people or we have to tear pages out of the Bible.
I thought I was going to school to be other people, but really, what I learned was to be myself - accepting myself, my strengths and weaknesses.
In Australia, we point out a person's weaknesses as a way of saying 'I see you and I accept you'. If you do that with Americans, they instantly take offence.
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
The acknowledgment of our weakness is the first step in repairing our loss.
