Thought of the Day: Moments of Weakness

Moments of weakness quote

We all have ideas about who we are and who we want to be. And moments of weakness are when the difference between the two becomes much more real. But whilst having the aspiration to grow is wonderful, we have to understand that we’re not perfect, and we shouldn’t have to be. Moments of weakness might be disorientating, regrettable or infuriating, but that shouldn’t make them undesirable. Because if we get too caught up in being perfect, in holding onto our sense of strength and power, we start to put walls up and shut out the world. Moments of weakness are revealing, they’re how we learn and they’re how we live. They’re when we let go of reason and expectations and make ourselves vulnerable. And that’s ok once in a while. It’s what we do after those moments of weakness that will show us who we really want to be. And that’s what counts.
